Washington state has a population of more than 13 million and some water rights experts are worried about the consequences.
The city of Seattle has more than 10 million people, but only 6 percent of its water comes from the Spokane River, according to the state Department of Ecology.
Water is often scarce in the region, and the region’s population has grown rapidly in recent decades.
In some places, the city of Bellevue, for example, has less than a fifth of the amount of water the state uses in the entire state.
So far, the state has issued about 2,700 water permits.
It has issued 5,100 permits since January, and many have been issued after a drought-related power outage caused by a massive tree fire.
“This drought is not a drought that will end.
The drought that’s going on right now is a long-term drought, and I don’t think there’s any real signs of a break in it,” said Bill Lauer, a Washington state water specialist with the National Resources Defense Council, which advocates for water rights.
The state is planning to increase water restrictions next month.
A few other states are also considering water restrictions.
Colorado, which has the nation’s second-highest per capita consumption, has also increased water restrictions in recent weeks, including a restriction on all use of the Colorado River in the state’s southernmost counties.
Water restrictions have also been introduced in Louisiana and Alabama, which have also seen extreme rainfall in recent years.
And in Florida, Gov.
Rick Scott said on Thursday that he is considering a proposal that would ban water use in most parts of the state.
A water shortage has led to rationing in some parts of Washington, where residents have been forced to rely on bottled water.
In some parts, it has also led to an increase in the number of water agencies in the area, which often have limited budgets and limited staff to deal with shortages.
But in other places, officials say water restrictions are not enough.
The state also says the water shortage is largely due to the extreme weather that has caused widespread damage to homes and property.
“I think there is a lot of pressure on the state and local governments to do more to deal [with] these conditions, and a lot more work needs to be done to address the water crisis,” said Bob Tinsley, the water division director for the Washington Department of Transportation.
“There’s a lot going on with this water crisis, and we’re going to be able to deal, if we all work together, with it.”
It’s unclear whether water restrictions will actually be enough to relieve the water shortages in some places.
In the city-county of Olympia, where most of the city’s water comes through the Spokane, the amount that people have is actually smaller than in the rest of the county, according.
Some residents have said they’re getting a little bit more water because of restrictions, but others have said that the restrictions have made it harder for them to survive in some areas.
While many areas of the country are seeing severe weather, including drought and flooding, the Washington drought has also been linked to other issues, including the wildfires that have devastated the U.S. Southwest and other states.
