Local, state and federal agencies work with the Governor's Office of Regulatory Assistance to update and maintain the Joint Aquatic Resources Permit Application (JARPA) form. Larger print, more space for answers, and help links make the form easier to use.
A new version of JARPA is now available on this website. Use JARPA Revision 2012.1 when applying for permits. There are two significant changes:
- Washington Department of Natural Resources now accepts JARPA and Attachment E as the application for Aquatic Use Authorizations.
- Beginning July 10, 2012, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife will require a $150 application fee for Hydraulic Project Approvals, unless exempt under RCW 77.55.
NEW! The Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife has a new, simplified Hydraulic Project Approval application for projects that meet certain provisions. For more information, go to http://wdfw.wa.gov/licensing/hpa/simplified_hpa_application.html.
