Washington Water Trust

Working to restore our state's rivers and streams.

  • Welcome To Washington Water Trust

    Since 1998, we have been working to return balance to our state's rivers and streams from eastern Washington to western Washington, to the Olympic Peninsula, San Juan Islands and beyond.

  • Real World Solutions

    Washington Water Trust is innovative and facilitates the kind of pragmatic real-world solutions that can effect lasting, sustainable change beneficial to all for generations to come.

  • Help Restore More of What's Missing

    At the right time, in the right place, even just small amounts of water left instream have an immensely positive impact--fish can spawn, wildlife can thrive, recreation can abound.

  • Ideas, like rivers, never have just one source.

    We offer an essential gathering place, a confluence of perspectives, where all who are interested in protecting rivers and streams have a voice.

  • All the water that was, is.

    Society's demand for water is outstripping supply—leaving many streams low or dry. Working with landowners to use water more efficiently, we leave more water instream to benefit all.
