Input Invited for Chehalis Basin Strategy

The Washington State Department of Ecology is seeking input from stakeholders to develop a comprehensive environmental strategy for the Chehalis River Basin.

This work, called the Chehalis Basin Strategy Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), will focus on possible solutions to reduce flood risk and restore aquatic species habitat in the basin.

Ecology invites the public to attend two public scoping meetings to provide ideas and give feedback on possible solutions.

These meetings will give tribes, agencies and the public the opportunity to discuss issues and concerns associated with the proposal and identify other potential alternatives to consider.

Stakeholder input is vital to crafting a holistic environmental solution for the Chehalis Basin.

Meetings details:

  • Monday, September 28, 6-9 p.m, Veterans Memorial Museum, 100 SW Veterans Way, Chehalis, Wash.
  • Tuesday, September 29, 6-9 p.m, City Hall Banquet Room, 112 N. Main St., Montesano, Wash.
