The Washington State Department of Enterprise Services (Enterprise Services) is conducting an environmental review process under the State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) for the Capitol Lake – Deschutes Estuary Long-Term Management Project.

What is the Capitol Lake – Deschutes Estuary?

Historically, what is now known as Capitol Lake was part of the Deschutes Estuary, where freshwater from the Deschutes River would mix with saltwater from Budd Inlet over expansive tideflats. The Deschutes Estuary has long-standing cultural and spiritual significance to local tribes, particularly the Squaxin Island Tribe.
