Washington Hydropower Land Access(3-WA)
In Washington, a developer may need a lease from the Washington Department of Natural Resources (“WDNR”) to develop a project on State-owned lands or an Aquatic Use Authorization for project activities on State-owned aquatic lands. A hydropower developer may also need a Forest Practices Permit to construct access roads or transmission line right-of-ways on private and State forest land or a State Land Right-of-Way from WDNR for access across other State lands. Additionally, a developer may also need a Utility Permit or Franchise from the Washington State Department of Transportation to place utility lines in a State highway right-of-way.
