CLIPA White Paper
Preserving Capitol Lake - A White Paper with Recommendations
The Capitol Lake Improvement and Protection Association (CLIPA) was formed early in 2010 to provide a community led study and program that is designed to protect and improve Capitol Lake as envisioned by the community. This plan includes the management of the Deschutes Watershed, including Capitol Lake and the lower Budd Inlet.
The CLIPA Science Panel has examined over 140 Studies and working documents. The first draft of the CLIPA PLAN was made available in July 2010. The White Paper was distributed to all of the key State Agencies, to the General Administration, the Legislators, the Capitol Committee, and to the general public.
CLIPA continues to research and evaluate the studies that CLAMP used to arrive at their recommendations related to the potential of reversing over 50 years of Lake management to recreate a tidal mudflat by removing the Fifth Avenue Dam.
