Clear Into The Future

Lake Chelan Weather

Mission & Goals

MISSION

Establish the long-term trends in the water quality of Lake Chelan in the context of land use and climate change. Its clear waters are a vital resource to the community and to visitors from around the world. We must understand processes governing the lake’s clarity if we are to preserve the lake’s ultra-low nutrient status.

  

GOALS:

  • Support lake stewardship by collection of key water quality data regularly in collaboration with local and state governmental organizations to ensure that we have the complete, unbiased, long-term data we need to protect the lake.
  • Explore Lake Chelan and its watershed through basic research and education, heightening awareness of the lake’s value and unique character
  • Understand the underlying hydrodynamic and biological processes that control the lake’s water quality as informed by a  digital model and database for the lake that are enduring and accessible for lake management
