WRIA 1 Watershed Management Project
The framework for watershed management in the state is based on geographic areas known as Water Resource Inventory Areas (WRIAs). WRIA 1 includes the Nooksack River basin and several adjoining smaller watersheds, such as the coastal drainages of Dakota and California Creeks, as well as Lake Whatcom.
The WRIA 1 Watershed Management Plan was completed in 2005 through the cooperation of local stakeholders and governments and provides a roadmap for addressing water quantity, water quality, in-stream flow, and fish habitat challenges.
