A045 - Geological Hazards and Resources, and LIDAR

Washington State’s geologic conditions can be hazardous to the public and negatively affect the economy; this activity identifies and documents geology and volcanic, earthquake, tsunami, and landslide hazards. The activity develops and publishes tsunami inundation and evacuation maps, landslide hazard maps, earthquake liquefaction maps, and volcanic lahar maps used by the public, local government, state agencies such as Emergency Management Division and Department of Transportation for response and planning purposes to mitigate social and economic losses. The identification and description of geological resources such as geothermal energy or aggregate resources and geologic hazards begin with a geologic map before the derivative resource or hazard maps can be prepared. This activity provides for the collection of highly accurate LiDAR data for geologic and hazard mapping as well as a repository of accurate, high quality elevation data for use by all state, local, and public entities. This activity maps specific locations selected by the State Geologist, with advice from the State Map Advisory Committee.

A060 - Forest Health & Resiliency: Forest Health Assessment, Treatment Planning & Recommendations

SB 5546, Forest Health Assessment and Treatment Framework (passed in 2017) - SB 5546 directs DNR to build on the 20-Year Forest Health Strategic Plan process to 1) develop an assessment and treatment framework designed to proactively and systematically address the forest health issues facing the state, and 2) endeavor to assess and treat one million acres of land by 2033; the DNR has committed to treating 1.25 million acres of unhealthy forest by 2037. This includes: identifying and assessing each biennium two hundred thousand acres of fire prone lands and communities that are in need of forest health improvement treatment; identifying the types and costs of treatments, data and planning needs to carry out recommended treatments; developing an appropriations request to the Legislature with a prioritized list of treatments and completing a report summarizing previous treatments and any implementation barriers each biennium (due December even year). Statewide Forest Action Plan – Congress, through the 2008 Farm Bill, required states to assess the condition of trees and forests within their boundaries, regardless of ownership, and develop strategies to: conserve working forest landscapes, protect forests from harm, and enhance public benefits from trees and forests. These plans are required to be updated every 5 years and every 10 years must be more fully revised – the next revision is due June 30, 2020. These plans are required for WA to continue receiving federal monies to be invested in our state and private forestry programs which includes State Fire Assistance, Forest Legacy, Forest Stewardship, Urban & Community Forestry, Volunteer Fire Assistance, and Landscape Scale Restoration.
