Meeting Will Focus On Watershed Area

The state Department of Natural Resources will hold a public meeting Wednesday night on the draft Thompson Creek Watershed Analysis.

The meeting, scheduled to last two hours, will begin at 6 p.m. in the Tri-Community Grange, one block north of Trent Avenue on Starr Road.

The 30,000-acre Thompson Creek Watershed area, which includes Newman Lake, is located about 15 miles northeast of Spokane.

DNR released the Thompson Creek Watershed Analysis draft earlier this month. It is available for review at local libraries.

An overview of the analysis will be given at the meeting, and DNR representatives will then answer questions.

Written comments also will be accepted at the meeting or by mail through May 1.

Comments should be sent to: Department of Natural Resources, Northeast Region, Attn: Dick Dunton, P.O. Box 190, Colville, WA 99114.

For more information about the study call Bill Bidstrup or Laura McDougall at (509) 684-7474.
