Watershed Plan - Lake Chelan

Dec. 14 Town Hall

The public is invited to a town hall event on Dec. 14 to learn about a watercraft inspection program coming next year at Lake Chelan. The town hall is 5 to 7 p.m. on Dec. 14 at Chelan Fire Hall, 232 E. Wapato Ave. in Chelan.

At the town hall event, Chelan County Natural Resources staff will talk about preventative measures that could be taken to protect Lake Chelan from aquatic invasive species, including the introduction of watercraft inspections. Funding from the National Park Service will be used to launch a voluntary mobile watercraft inspection program in 2023. The county is also looking at a mandatory inspection program for the future.



Chelan County has been working for many years with the stakeholders and communities along the shores of Lake Chelan on water quality issues, water resources and water rights, long term water quality monitoring and watershed planning efforts. From 1991 to 2007, water quality planning activities were conducted by the Lake Chelan Water Quality Committee (LCWQC). In 2007, the Lake Chelan Watershed Planning Unit (LCWPU) was formed, largely by members of the LCWQC, and has continued the objectives and activities of the LCWQC under the Watershed Planning Act and you can view the Watershed Plan and the Detailed Implementation Plan.
