The Mid-Coast Water Planning Partnership announced this week that a draft plan, The Mid-Coast Water Action Plan, is available for public review and comment.

The announcement is a culmination of five years (2016 through 2021) of cooperative work by more than 250 stakeholders to create a plan to balance future water needs in the Mid-Coast Basin (Cascade Head to Cape Perpetua). This pilot program was guided and supported by Oregon’s Integrated Water Resources Strategy. The draft plan can be found on the Mid-Coast Water Planning Partnership website: https://www.midcoastwaterpartners.com/mcwpp-water-action-plan

The public is invited to review the draft and report back their level of support for the plan’s proposed actions. This information will help gauge community support for the draft and inform future updates to the plan. Specific proposed actions appear in the Implementation Table (pages 54-79). People who are not familiar with the partnership or who need a refresher should read the executive summary (pages viii – 14) for context and explore the partnership’s website for information. 

All input will be anonymous, and a compiled list of comments will be shared with partners and posted to the website. Email your comments to the partnership’s planning coordinator, Alexandria Scott at alexandria@midcoastwaterpartners.com. The deadline for submitting comments is Feb. 8.

The MCWPP is a voluntary, locally led, non-regulatory gathering of regional partners who work collaboratively to understand and balance the water needs of mid-coast communities, environments and economies.
