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 www.cdalakesurvey.com 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.
