Abstract

In May of 2014, all 39 counties in Washington State were declared to be in a state of drought. This has thrust the topic of reclaimed water to the forefront of our state's water vision, however traditional policy frameworks hinder the opportunity to realize a bright reclaimed future. The complex water resource problems of tomorrow can only be solved by a policy framework that can champion policy arenas which are more polycentralized and in turn, solve the complex problems that arouse during the lifespan of traditional policy frameworks.
