Lower Wenatchee Instream Flow Enhancement Project
The proposed project consists of piping 6 miles of existing Pioneer Water Users Association open canal and installing a new efficient pumpback water withdrawal system. Additionally, the point of diversion will be moved from the lower Wenatchee River to its confluence with the Columbia River
This conservation project provides OCR with an opportunity to increase stream flows in the Wenatchee River in late summer, a critical time for salmon and steelhead.
Moving the diversion downstream and bringing greater efficiency to the water delivery system will increase flows by ten percent (35 cubic feet per second) in August and September.
