Chelan-Douglas Trends | Lowest average river flows per year

Change in flow is a key determinant of a river's health. Changes in flow are caused by both human and natural actions. These include rainfall, snowfall, temperature and draws for potable, industrial and agricultural use. Without adequate flows, fish do not have enough water to live, the water becomes too warm to support a healthy fish population and pollution from municipalities, industries, fertilizers and pesticides is concentrated in a smaller amount of water.

Chelan-Douglas Trends | Share of population with some college or an associate’s degree

Community colleges fill a vital need in the United States.

This indicator captures not only those residents who have attended Wenatchee Valley College but any resident who has attended a community college elsewhere.
