The Clark County Clean Water Commission is hosting the Lacamas Watershed Symposium on Oct. 25 to foster constructive dialog about strategies to improve water quality in the Lacamas watershed. The event, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., invites elected officials, board members, key stakeholders, funders and implementers to share the science and data that is driving management decisions in the watershed. The agenda includes presentations from Clark County, the Washington State Department of Ecology, Lacamas Watershed Council, City of Camas, Watershed Alliance of Southwest Washington and Clark Conservation District.

The symposium will be held at the Lacamas Lodge at 227 NW Lake Road in Camas. Members of the public can attend online via Webex. Virtual meeting information can be found at clark.wa.gov/public-works/clean-water-commission. The symposium agenda is also posted on the webpage.

The symposium is hosted by the Clark County Clean Water Commission, a nine-member group that makes recommendations to the Clark County Council about services and policies protecting watershed health throughout the community.

Members of the media are invited to attend in person. Staff will be available to coordinate interviews with elected officials and symposium presenters during the lunch hour.
