We have record-low snowpack in the mountains, and snowmelt through the spring and summer is what traditionally keeps rivers flow- ing, crops watered, and fish alive. We are starting to f~el the pain fi'om this snowpack drought. Impacts are already severe in several areas of the state. MoJv than 70 percent of the state's snow monitoring stations have record-low snowpack. As a result, many of our major rivers are forecasted to have record-low flows - the lowest in the past 64 years - between April and September. This shortfall is a serious threat to municipal and domestic water supplies, irrigated agriculture, ,and fisheries throughout Washington. With the concurrence of Governor Inslee and following consultation with afl~cted Indian Tribes, I hereby expand the drought cnnergency to include all of Washington State. Snowpack conditions across the state have continued to decline since the initial regional &'ought declaration on March 13, 2015. Dozens of major rivers are at record-low flows ~br this date. The longer-term weather forecast is for warner and drier-than-normal conditions for this spring and summer. Conditions are likely to get worse. Reduced snowpack creates risks to municipal and domestic water supplies. The Department of Health has identified numerous water systems throughout the state that draw water from shallow alluvial aquit~rs, which are dependent on ~-oundwater recharge from snowmelt. Agriculture faces a risk of crop loss throughout the state. Framers in the Yakima and the WaUa Walla basins are being curtailed, wlticb could have devastating impacts on orchards and vine- yards. Curtailment is likely to occur in. the Little Spokane, Nooksack, and Chehalis basins, and could occur for the fn'st time ever in the Colville Basin. Loss to perennial crops in these regions would be a significant hardship to indMdual farmers and agricultural communities. Throughout the state, there is a high risk that fish populations w-ill experience hardship fi'om ex- tremely low flowing rivers this year. Hatcheries will face warmer water, increased risk of disease, and potential loss of water supply. Tributaries and smaller streams may &'op to levels where stream channels become impassible to fish. Pools of water will become disconnected from other pools, isolating fish and increasing the risks of predation and harassment. Therefore. in accordance with the provisions of RCW 43.838.405, IT IS ORDERED that all of Washington state is hereby under a drought emergency. "Ibis order is effective imanediately and shall remain ha effect through December 31,2015, unless terminated prior to that date. In accordance with the provisions of WAC 173-166-060, the Department of Ecology may, under the terms of this order, take the fbllowing emergency actions: (1) Issue'emergency permits ibr water. (2) Approve temporary transi~rs of water rights. (3) Provide thnding assistance to public agencies to alleviatc drought conditions. (4) Take other actions depending on future developments. Other state and local agencies with authority, to issue permits or authorizations related to the drought emergency actions must provide a decision to an applicant within fifteen (15) calendar days of the date of application. In accordance with the proclamation of the Washington Governor. dated January 3, 1989, ICentennial Accord), nothing herein shall impair or infi-inge upon the treaty reserved rights or govenamental authority .of any fbderally recognized lndian tribe nor shall this order be deemed an assertion of state authority over Indian reservation lands. The Department of Ecology intends to work cooperatively, on a government-to-government basis, with all affected tribes.
