Featured Project

Cle Elum Fish Passage

Built in 1933 without fish passage, Cle Elum dam is now being retrofitted with a downstream fish passage facility  consisting of a multi-level inlet ramp with gated openings that will operate at various reservoir levels. It will feed into a corkscrew ramp structure designed to maximize fish survival as they travel to the downstream side of the dam.

Upcoming Meetings

Our Workgroup meets quarterly to receive updates on Yakima Basin Integrated Plan actions and activities, offer input, and share perspectives. The public is encouraged to attend meetings and participate by providing comments. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, these meetings have shifted from in-person to being held on a virtual platform.
