Resources for Basin Residents

Those of us who live, work, and spend time in the Chehalis Basin know it is a place unlike any other.

Our love for this special region is what brings so many different communities, interests, and people together to create a safe and strong future for coming generations.

We also know the uniqueness of this region brings its own challenges. The Chehalis Basin Strategy is a one-stop resource for getting in touch with experts, assistance, and funding for keeping your family, home, and business safe from flood damage, while protecting and improving habitat at the same time.
