The Okanogan Conservation District and the Methow Watershed Council are partnering to host an update on the process of forming the Okanogan County Water Bank, on Friday, Nov. 17, at 5:30 p.m. at the Twisp Valley Grange.
As the water bank is still in development, now is the time to get feedback from the community regarding the goals, needs, and hopes for a water bank, and address questions about what benefits and issues a water bank can address, the organizers said.
Representatives of the Water Bank Team, Okanogan Conservation District and Methow Watershed Council will give a short presentation on the current status of Okanogan County Water Bank. The presentation will be followed by small group gatherings to discuss and develop questions and feedback regarding the goals, needs, benefits and issues of the local water bank to inform the development process.
Community members are invited to take a survey before the meeting. Go to okanogancd.org or methowwatershed.com for more information.
