Sync - System Improvement Team

The system improvement team was created by the Legislature in HB 1677 to “identify, implement, and report on improvements” to the water/wastewater/stormwater funding programs to maximize their value. The Public Works Board along with the departments of Commerce, Ecology and Health are synchronizing their efforts to create a more efficient structure for infrastructure financing programs.
