Agreement inked between Ecology, county

— The county and the Washington State Department of Ecology will continue their groundwater management work.

An interlocal agreement between the two was yesterday approved by Yakima County commissioners.

The agreement extends the work being done by the Lower Yakima Groundwater Management Area program to reduce nitrate contamination in groundwater throughout the Lower Yakima Valley.

Ecology assists the groundwater group in developing plans for monitoring groundwater contamination and programs for reducing the contamination.

The agreement will remain in place until Dec. 31, 2017.
