Description Under the Integrated Plan, the level of Cle Elum Lake will be raised by 3 feet (from 2,240 feet to 2,243 feet above mean sea level).

Raising the pool will increase the reservoir’s available storage volume by approximately 14,600 acre-feet, benefitting irrigation, stream flows for fish, and domestic, municipal, and industrial users.
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.
