Fraser receives inaugural Washington Water Leadership Award

June 26th, 2014|

Sen. Karen Fraser, D-Thurston County, has been awarded the inaugural Washington Water Leadership Award by The Center for Environmental Law & Policy (CELP) for her continuing commitment to responsible water policy and the environment.

“I am honored to accept this award, and I appreciate this recognition of my efforts over many years,” said Fraser. “Water is essential for all known forms of life and is a precious resource we all must share and protect. As we advance water policy in our state and region, I believe it is important to make sure that our policies are consistent with both the U.S. and State Constitutions; that we use the best available science; and we fairly balance the many competing demands for this limited natural resource.”

The inaugural Washington Water Leadership Award honors individuals and organizations who publicly advocate for sustainable water resource stewardship throughout Washington State and the Pacific Northwest.

The Center for Environmental Law & Policy was founded by University of Washington Law School Professor Ralph W. Johnson in 1993 and continues to be a strong voice for water resource management and preservation in our state.
