AWC co-hosts lunch with legislators to discuss funding for removal of fish-blocking culverts

AWC collaborated with the Washington State Association of Counties to hold a brown bag lunch for legislators this week to discuss the work we have been doing to create a statewide strategic approach to replacing fish blocking culverts and to fund a program to help local governments. We were encouraged by the turnout by legislators and their continued recognition that it makes sense to find a way to fund local government culvert replacements so that fish can actually benefit from the investments in corrections for state owned culverts. It does not make sense to pay billions of dollars to fix state-owned culverts if the fish just encounter a locally owned culvert right up stream.
