Where are you getting your numbers?  I show:

Kitsap County 566 sq miles
Island County 517 sq miles
San Juan County 621 sq miles

The only one I see it effecting is Wahkiakum County.  I didn't even know 
it existed.

It says an area of less the 500 square miles.  It doesn't specify a land 
area of 500 square miles.
