The Moses Lake/Crab Creek planning area includes the waters of Moses Lake and Rocky Ford Creek, and 136 miles of Crab Creek extending from the Stratford Road Bridge in the city of Moses Lake upstream to the creek’s crossing at State Highway 2 about 2.7 miles west of Reardon. Upstream to downstream, Crab Creek passes through the towns or cities of Odessa, Irby, Krupp, Wilson Creek, Stratford, and Moses Lake. The planning area fully resides within the limits of Grant and Lincoln counties, and includes portions of Water Resource Inventory Area 41 (WRIA-41, Lower Crab), WRIA-42 (Grand Coulee), and WRIA-43 (Upper Crab-Wilson).

Interim Updates


In between plan updates, GRP strategies are tested during drills and actual spill events. The results of these tests may require changes to certain response strategies, notification strategies, staging areas, or boat launch locations. Eventually, these changes will be fully incorporated into the plan. Until that time, please use the updated strategy and information sheets below in lieu of that provided for similarly numbered locations in the published plan.

No interim updates currently available
