Environmental Review

In accordance with the State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA), Chelan County and Ecology’s Office of Columbia River have prepared a Draft Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (PEIS) for the Icicle Strategy.  The purpose of this PEIS is to evaluate the potential environmental impacts of implementing a comprehensive water resource management plan in the Icicle Creek Subbasin, with the guiding principles as the water management objectives.  This Draft PEIS evaluates five alternatives as well as a no-action alternative.  Each alternative consists of a combination of projects that when implemented will collectively meet the Work Group’s adopted guiding principles.

The public comment period for this Draft PEIS ended on July 30, 2018.
