Priest Lake fans from all over the country are responding with great interest in the “Save The Thorofare” project, which, if successful, will see a realignment of the channel and repair or replacement of the thorofare breakwater entrance to the Upper Lake, our little sister jewel in the north.
As the other readings in this website explain, breaches and deterioration of our breakwater are causing silt and sediment to fill and block the entrance channel. The overwhelming response to the problem is encouraging.
Several years ago Bonner County created the “Breakwater Committee” to oversee, evaluate and to perform some temporary remedial repair to breaches and buildup of sediment
The purpose of this post is in reply to the people who have already asked: “Tell us how to help” and to ask YOU to help also.
The mission of our organization with the “People Helping People, Inc. Charitable Fund” is to make sure that ALL powered craft, as well as paddlers, will be able to continue to enjoy the Upper Priest Lake. The entire purpose of the project is to preserve access for ALL and this includes, not only recreational vessels but Forest Service craft that service the campsites and the Bonner County Marine patrol.
Share this information and join the effort to keep access for ALL to enjoy the treasure. Follow us on our Facebook page for updates.
