Abstract: Coordinated water system planning in Washington State is being implemented successfully to manage statewide growth and development. The problems of the past water system arose due to lack of planning and coordination; these problems are described. The Public Water System Coordination Act (PWSCA) was passed by the state legislature to solve water system concerns through planning and coordination. PWSCA provisions, procedures and basic concepts are summarized. Finally, a study (which attempts to solve the major problems of the system through PWSCA implementation) is analyzed.
