Description The Pend Oreille River watershed encompasses about 26,000 square miles in parts of Washington State, Canada and Idaho. The Washington portion of the watershed, often referred to as Water Resource Inventory Area (WRIA) 62, totals about 1,300 square miles in the northeastern section of the state. The Pend Oreille River is a major tributary of the Columbia River.
This publication provides an overview of water resources in WRIA 62: water availability, water quality, watershed planning and Shoreline Master Program. It includes general information on water rights as well as contacts and web sites for more information.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
