CRO - Water Right Documents:
Review and Comment

Welcome to the Central Region Office (CRO) review and comment portal. Your input is valuable to our decision-making process. You are invited to review the water right documents posted on this page. To view documents posted in other regions, use the links above.

When a document is available for comment, follow the link to our comment page. Please note that you will need the document number to submit your comment. Other water right documents are posted for a review period. When a document has a statutory appeal period, we provide a link to more information on submitting an appeal. Because the statutory appeal period for our documents begins when the applicant receives the document, we cannot guarantee that a document posted here has an open appeal period. For information on when an appeal period begins and ends, please contact the CRO Help Desk at 509-575-2597 during business hours.

To receive a notice each time the Central Region Office (CRO) posts a document, create or update your GovDelivery  account. Check the box(es) for Public Comment for each region you are interested in under “Water Resources Program”. We do not send notices when Water Right Applications are posted.
