Send a letter asking your Legislator to fix the Hirst decision by supporting SB 5239
In October 2016, the Washington Supreme Court issued a decision in a case called Hirst v. Whatcom County, a water rights case that could mean that no water supply is available for new household wells on vacant lots in Washington State.
During the 2017 Legislative Session in Olympia, lawmakers need to solve this problem. I need you to fix the Hirst decision.
I am asking you to support SB 5239 to ensure that rural landowners in Washington State have access to water supply.
