Grant funds expended and/or projected through June 2015



The plan for the western half of the Wind-White Salmon watershed (WRIA 29a) was approved by the planning group in December 2005, and approved by Skamania and Klickitat counties in November 2006. Phase 4 implementation actions and grant requests are not expected until July 2009.

The 2007 Legislature split the Wind-White Salmon watershed into two sub-basins for continued planning and implementation purposes. The Wind sub-basin in the western part of the basin became WRIA 29a and the White Salmon sub-basin in the east became WRIA 29b.

Additional information about the Wind watershed plan can be found on the plan website.

Instream flow status

The planning group, in consultation with Ecology, is working on instream flow recommendations.  Instream flow work began in the summer of 2006 and will continue through the biennium to June 2009.  This planning group is using a combination of operating funds and capital grant funds to have new gages installed in the watershed to support instream flow recommendations.
