Puyallup and Chambers Salmon Recovery Lead Entity

Document (1)
The Puyallup and Chambers Watershed Salmon Recovery Lead Entity is made up of many partners including other local governments, state, federal, and tribal stakeholders and non-profit organizations, and we work together to protect and enhance wild salmon populations. Chinook, Coho, Chum and Pink salmon, as well as Steelhead, cutthroat and Bull Trout all call Pierce County’s rivers and streams home. For generations, salmon have been an important part of this area’s culture and economy. It is the job of everyone living and working in Pierce County to help protect these special fish for future generations to help ensure that they also have the quality of life that we currently enjoy.   

The Lead Entity has completed the updated  2018 Salmon Habitat Protection and Restoration Strategy for Puyallup and Chambers Watersheds.

  1. About Lead Entities
  2. What We Do
Lead entities are local, watershed-based organizations created by RCW 77.85 to solicit, develop, prioritize and submit habitat protection and restoration projects for funding by the state's Salmon Recovery Funding Board (SRFB). 

The water resource inventory areas (WRIAs) 10 and 12 are also called the Chambers-Clover Creeks and Puyallup River watersheds. Both WRIAs are included in one lead-entity. The lead entity has developed a strategy to recover salmon in these watersheds. The strategy guides the ranking of salmon recovery project proposals and can be found in the Resource Library below. 

At a regional scale, there is a Salmon Recovery Plan with individual chapters for each watershed (in most cases). You can find more information about recovery plans from Puget Sound Partnership.
