Watershed improvement districts

HB 2616 provides that GMA planning cities must allow watershed improvement districts to “perform watershed management actions.” Those districts perform ditch maintenance and sediment removal functions. Apparently, the proposal stems from certain rural parts of the state where ditch maintenance is not a priority for certain local governments. Ditches in disrepair can cause flooding and potential regulatory issues.

Please review from your city’s perspective and provide feedback to Carl Schroeder.
