Hydraulic code updates affect construction around state waters

CONSERVATION -- The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife will accept public comments through Nov. 15 on proposed updates to the Hydraulic Code, which governs construction work in and around state waters.

Agency staff will hold a public meeting to discuss the changes on Monday, Oct. 28, at Center Place Event Center, 2426 N. Discovery Pl. in Spokane Valley.

Hydraulic Code rules were last updated in 1994, with the exception of those for mineral prospecting, which were updated in 2008.

The proposals would update the requirements to stay current with fish science and design technology and streamline the review process for hydraulic permit applications, agency officials said.
