Our goal was to make a plan that could be supported by humans regardless of their political persuasion and at the same time welcomed by the aquatic life present within the boundaries of the riparian zone.

Planning for the Future of the Entiat
The Entiat Water Resource Inventory Area 46, or WRIA 46, Management Plan was completed in 2004. Over the course of eleven years numerous individuals spent countless hours working toward the watershed vision that is captured in the content of the plan. A major goal of the Entiat Watershed Planning Unit was to produce a living watershed management plan – one that will grow, be added to, and improved over time. In keeping with that spirit, the group views this document as a “working” final version of the WRIA 46 Management Plan envisioned under the Watershed Planning Act.
The EWPU fully anticipates revisiting and updating the plan in the years to come, and hopes that the WRIA 46 Plan will contribute valuable information and local input to other ongoing local and regional processes such as salmon recovery planning.
