Issaquah Creek watershed

Thanks to the city for its diligence and commitment to salmon recovery

The Friends of the Issaquah Salmon Hatchery want to pass along our congratulations and appreciation to staff with the city of Issaquah for outstanding work representing the city in the most recent WRIA 8 2014 Watershed Management Grant Program.

Out of 15 proposals submitted, nine were selected for site-specific restoration and acquisition projects. Of those nine, four were city of Issaquah proposals. Of the $1,520,273 available for distribution, the funding designated for Issaquah’s projects was $490,000.

Without the excellent work from city staff and the mayor and the City Council’s support for salmon recovery, the Issaquah Creek watershed would have lost an invaluable opportunity to fund this much-needed work.

As in the past, it was noted that Issaquah consistently makes persuasive presentations. During this time of hypercritical focus on city governments, we wanted to make sure when the city does a good job, it gets proper recognition. With gratitude we wish to thank them for a job well done.

FISH appreciates partnering with a city that has such a strong commitment to the preservation and conservation of our salmon.
