A Wealth of Water

The abundance of natural resources found in Mason County includes 250 miles of marine shoreline, 223 lakes and 312 miles of streams. These marine and freshwater resources are valued for countless recreational and commercial (employment) opportunities as well as for their importance to a traditional diet and way of life. The on-going quality of these water resources is the concern of Mason County, the Squaxin and Skokomish Tribe, the City of Shelton and state and federal agencies and to all citizens of the county.

The Oakland Bay Clean Water District was formed in 2007 in response to degraded water quality at the north end of Oakland Bay. The goal of the district is to reduce water pollution and ensure that Oakland Bay remain safe for swimming, fishing and all activities important to the culture, heritage and economy of the area. This website is a link to many resources within the community available to you. If there is something you don’t see but would like more information on please don’t hesitate to contact us. Check back often as we will be posting upcoming events, workshops and volunteer opportunities too.
