EDITORIAL | Shellfish protection district should go away

  • Oct 7, 2015 at 6:00AM

A state Department of Health official told The Record recently that of the 18 shellfish protection districts formed in Washington over the years, not a single one has ever been dissolved. Even those that have seen dramatic improvement remain in place, though they are now classified as being inactive. The problem? One of the primary roadblocks it seems is that state law doesn’t specify how to do away with these emergency-response districts once they’ve been created. How, when and why to form them, yes, but not what to do once the job is done.
