Public Comment Requested on Grant County’s Shoreline Program

A program to manage shorelines along six rivers and 80 lakes including portions of the Columbia River and Banks Lake within Grant County is open for comment through the Washington Department of Ecology.

The locally tailored shoreline program is designed to help minimize environmental damage to shoreline areas, reserve appropriate areas for water-oriented uses, and protect people’s access to public land and waters.

Grant County spearheaded a regional update process with Coulee City, Electric City, Grand Coulee, Krupp, Soap Lake, and Wilson Creek in 2011. Each of these cities will individually submit their shoreline programs once their local adoption is complete.

After approval from Ecology, the county’s shoreline program will become part of the overall state shoreline program.

Comments will be accepted through July 18.
