Vancouver Lake Management Plan Project

Vancouver Lake shoreline

In 2021, a state operating budget appropriation was awarded to Clark County “for the purpose of designing the process for developing a long-term plan to restore and maintain the health of Vancouver Lake… as well as designing an institutional structure to take responsibility for the plan’s implementation in a financially sustainable manner”, which resulted in the Vancouver Lake Management Plan project.

Herrera Environmental Consultants was selected by Clark County to develop an adaptive Lake Management Plan (LMP) for immediate action to manage harmful algal blooms and aquatic noxious weeds, with a structure for future development of management actions to address other lake issues. The LMP will build on existing work done on Vancouver Lake, and involve a variety of stakeholders to outline a management strategy and address plan development, entity responsibilities, timelines, and potential funding sources for plan implementation.

A Public Survey of lake uses and concerns has been prepared for this project to help development of the Vancouver Lake Management Plan. Please submit your survey response by end of day, August 26, 2022.
