Warden Washington Geographic Response Plan (WWA-GRP)

The Warden Washington GRP planning area is approximately 131 square miles, and resides within the boundaries of Grant County. Wheeler is the only town in the planning area, with the larger City of Warden being just outside the plan’s boundary to the south. The area falls within the 13th Legislative District. Portions of WRIA 41 (Lower Crab) also fall within this planning area, and includes: Weber Coulee (9.6 Miles), Lind Coulee (9.5 Miles), Rocky Coulee (4.2 Miles), and the East Low Canal (~10.5 Miles). No tribal reservations are located within the planning area, but the Colville, Nez Perce, and Spokane Tribes all have potential interests in the area. Major roadways include Interstate 90 (13.1 Miles) and Hwy 17 (8.7 Miles). The Columbia Basin Railroad (32.0 Miles) is the only company that owns railroad track in this area. No contingency plan holding oil facilities or pipelines are located within the boundaries of this planning area. The Warden Washington GRP is bordered by the Moses Lake/Crab Creek GRP to the northwest.

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.

There are no interim updates at this time
