Spirit Lake/Toutle-Cowlitz Rivers Collaborative, April 2021 – Present
Representatives of the U.S. congressional delegation, Cowlitz Tribe, and state and federal agencies expressed support for a collaborative approach to long-term sediment management and related issues. The watershed-wide consortium is intended to benefit current and long-term planning efforts to address sediment and land management, public safety, and other important issues.
The first phase of the Collaborative was very successful leading to the signing of a Declaration of Cooperation and the establishment of operating protocols. (see above)
