WRIA 54 Lower The Spokane River Watershed Plan

The WRIA 54 Planning Unit began Phase III of the watershed planning process, plan development, at the August 2007 Planning Unit meeting.  The Planning Unit decided to approach planning through development of Issue Papers for core issues within the watershed.  The Issue Papers will consist of a background discussion, supporting data, unknowns, alternatives considered, and action to implement.  The Issue Papers will be developed by workgroups that will meet apart from the Planning Unit and then report back to the Planning Unit as appropriate.  Six workgroups have been established, water quality, water management, land use, technical information base, education, and instream flow.

The following documents detail the issue paper development process and the proposed schedule:
