OLYMPIA – The state’s Forest Practices Board approved a rule today aimed at improving protections for water quality and public safety in several watersheds where timber harvesting and other forest practices occur.

“Today the board took positive steps as a result of the lessons learned from the extraordinary rain event in the Chehalis River basin in 2007,” said Commissioner of Public Lands Peter Goldmark. “This gives more substance to DNR’s monitoring and enforcement of watershed protections and its recommendations for additional steps to protect public safety, property and clean water.”
