Chehalis: A Watershed Moment, tells the story of communities in the Pacific Northwest that are grappling with impacts of climate change. A sever flood in 2007, the fourth such event 30 years, caused widespread devastation and alarm in the Chehalis basin in southwest Washington. With the flood came the resurgence of long-standing interest in building a flood retention dam. However, many are skeptical of the proposed dam and many community members are pushing for conservation-based strategies. The Chehalis river lies at the intersection of economic, environmental, social and cultural questions that will increasingly face us as climate change impacts increase.
