State, tribe conducting survey on lake water

The state of Idaho and the Coeur d’Alene Tribe want to know how knowledgeable local residents are about Lake Coeur d’Alene’s water quality.

They’re encouraging people to take a 22-question survey at through the end of September.

The answers will help officials determine whether to launch a public education program, said Rebecca Stevens, the tribe’s lake management plan coordinator. The outreach could include information about how to protect the lake and what types of land-use actions require a permit.

Robinson Research of Spokane is conducting the online survey. It’s part of a $40,000 contract that also included focus groups and surveys of community leaders.
