White Salmon Aquifer Storage May Start Soon

Permitting is nearly complete to allow White Salmon’s Aquifer Storage and Recovery Program to begin.  City officials are hoping for water quality permits from the Washington Department of Ecology to be issued in time for operations to start in the first quarter of 2019.  Under the program, water not needed to meet City demands in the winter would be diverted from Buck Creek, treated, and conveyed into one of the City’s wells where the water would be injected into the aquifer for storage and then used during high demand periods.  Mayor David Poucher says that will give them 25 percent of their water during peak usage times.  Poucher noted the City has been working on this project for nearly ten years.
