Hi, All! We are down to the wire now. Do you want to try to preserve our rural way of life? Or, give up?
We need you to make a comment, no matter how small, or attend the public hearing, Thursday, at the Sequim Community Church, 5th Avenue. Posters, info, and open house at 3:30. Presentation, followed by hearing, starting at 6 PM. Do you know people who live on, or off, Bagley Creek Road, Deer Park, up in Happy Valley, Texas Valley, Blue Mountain, Sutter Rd, South up Hooker or Taylor Cut-Off–if you are West of Sieberts Creek, or South of the irrigation diversions, and you have not put your well to beneficial use, you will not be able to buy outside water.
Do you understand the Water Exchange? Can you tell your clients how much mitigation fee they will have to pay? Or, how much outside water they can buy? This Water Rule is not ready. The questions are not answered. I’ve attached the letter from the Port Angeles Business Association. There are many other letters and comments. You can go to www.sequimwater.com and get more information. Please don’t sit this one out. If water is not important to you, what is? It’s one evening out of your life. Or, 15 minutes out of your day, to write an email.
Thank you! Emails can go to Ann Wessel, WA State Department of Ecology, firstname.lastname@example.org
