Public input on Chambers-Clover watershed plan environmental review

WRIA 12 Watershed Restoration and Enhancement Plan

April 29, 2021 - May 23, 2021, 11:59 p.m.

We are seeking public input through May 23 on our environmental review of the new Chambers-Clover (WRIA 12) watershed plan.

A new watershed plan for the Chambers-Clover watershed, developed by a local planning group, will help improve fish habitat while ensuring water is available for rural homes. The plan is part of a statewide effort to improve streamflows and aquatic habitat. 

We completed an environmental review of the plan and issued a determination of non-significance (DNS) under the State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) since the plan is not likely to have adverse environmental impacts.

We are asking the public toreview the DNS and Environmental Checklist and send us comments using the online form linked below. Your comments may identify missing or incorrect information, say whether additional studies are needed, or provide other information that could help us improve our environmental analysis.

Background

The Chambers-Clover watershed, also known as Water Resource Inventory Area (WRIA) 12, covers a part of  Pierce County. It is one of 15 watersheds identified in the 2018 streamflow restoration law that requires a watershed plan or plan update. The purpose of the law is to support robust, healthy, and sustainable salmon populations while providing water for homes in rural Washington.
