White Salmon To Talk With Group About River Withdrawals

White Salmon officials will meet with the Washington Water Trust next week about a proposal to increase the City’s water supply by withdrawing from the White Salmon River.  Mayor David Poucher says the City’s water rights come off the White Salmon River, adding the state Department of Ecology, Department of Health, and the Yakama Nation have indicated they like that solution. But Poucher says the City would need financial help to do the project, estimated to cost $6,000,000.  The Washington Water Trust is a non-profit organization that seeks to find solutions to water issues.  Poucher says coming of the main stem of the White Salmon would have environmental benefits and eliminate the need for more wells, noting the City would still get the bulk of its water from Buck Creek.
