A Collaborative Community Project

The Story of Water is a collaborative project of the Clallam County League of Women Voters and local community partners, including the cities of Sequim and Port Angeles, Clallam County, The Jamestown S'Klallam Tribe, Dungeness River Audubon Center, Olympic Peninsula Audubon Society, North Olympic Land Trust, Clallam Conservation District, PUD#1, and local hydrologists. The program is designed to educate our local community about the water challenges facing Clallam County in maintaining a healthy and sustainable water supply for personal, agricultural and business consumption.
