The WISE Project Advisory Committee (PAC) is examining different alternatives to improve local irrigation systems and delivery efficiencies, the aquatic habitat for anadromous salmonids, and the water supply for municipal treatment and distribution.

An environmental review, in the form of a combined Feasibility Study and Environmental Impact Statement (FS/EIS), began in 2004 to identify and thoroughly evaluate alternatives. The FS/EIS is underway and is being conducted in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act. The analysis will identify a range of alternatives and mitigation measures to achieve project goals. The Draft Pre-Feasibility Study is available for public review.
