Moses Lake Watershed Council Addresses Concerns About Local Water Quality
March 6, 2019
The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, Washington State Department of Ecology, Grant County Conservation District, Grant County Health District, Moses Lake Irrigation and Rehabilitation District, and the City of Moses Lake collaborated in developing the Moses Lake Watershed Council to explore alternatives for addressing water quality issues affecting the Moses Lake watershed. The Moses Lake Watershed Council seeks guidance from the public to explore long-term solutions to local water quality issues.
Moses Lake and the surrounding watershed are susceptible to blue-green algae blooms. Blue-green algae is actually a bacterium called cyanobacteria that have similar qualities to forms of algae. Some blue-green algae produce toxins that are harmful to humans and animals. Blooms occur in the summer, when higher temperatures and elevated nutrient levels combine to create a thriving environment for blue-green algae. Whether or not blooms are toxic, they diminish the economic and recreational opportunities in Moses Lake and the surrounding region.
The Moses Lake Watershed Council’s goal is to assess current water quality conditions in the local watershed and explore effective, locally developed solutions. You can participate in the Moses Lake Watershed Council’s efforts by filling out the survey at and joining us for a Public Meeting to be held from 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM the evening of Wednesday, May 15th at the Moses Lake Civic Center Council Chambers located at 401 S Balsam St, Moses Lake, WA 98837.
