On April 8, 2008, the Washington Department of Ecology (Ecology) announced a “Memorandum of Agreement” with Kittitas County placing significant restrictions on new residential development. In order to forestall a threatened groundwater moratorium, Kittitas County, located just east of the Cascade Mountains, has agreed to restrict rural residential developments relying on permit-exempt groundwater wells and to require water meters for individual residential connections in new developments.
