The City operates several wells in the general area of the Olympia Airport and Israel Road. Many of these wells and the associated water rights were acquired by the City from the Port of Olympia in 1991. As with the Palermo water rights, in 2001 the City negotiated with the Department of Ecology to review the quantities associated with previously issued water rights and determine whether the amounts were correctly established. As a result, the Washington State Department of Ecology issued a superseding permit that increased the City’s water right portfolio.
