LCPUD reply to boaters re:river access 17Oct2016

Renee Paradis

Today we received notice that LCPUD filed with FERC its reply to boaters’ concerns and complaints about lack of access to the lower Cispus River. LCPUD is required to provide access in accordance with its project license P-2833, Articles 42 and 17. LCPUD’s reply is five pages and is attached to this post. It can also be found under public documents section of WKC website.

Twelve complaints were filed with FERC between early Sept and mid Oct 2016 about lack of public access to the river. These comments were instrumental in alerting FERC that there is a genuine issue with lack of access, which ultimately resulted in LCPUD’s reply.

Unfortunately, the access issue is not yet resolved, however, discussions are moving in the right direction. Future public service announcements may be necessary in requesting your participation. Please let me know if you would like to be added to the email distribution for future discussions.

On behalf of WKC, all whitewater paddlers and the non-kayaking public, thank you everyone for taking an active interest and participating. It is you who help to strengthen our community.

Greater western Washington has three current river issues needing your support…Sunset Falls, SF Skykomish River hydro-power diversion (SnoPUD), NF Skykomish road reconstruction/river access (agency unknown), and the lower Cispus River (LCPUD).
