Twin Harbors Waterkeeper
Westport
360-389-2979
Two of the largest estuaries within the state of Washington, Grays Harbor and Willapa Bay, are known locally as Twin Harbors where the Chehalis and Willapa River Basins drain and chinook, coho, chum, steelhead, bull trout, and cutthroat run. The Chehalis River is the only river basin in Washington state that does not have any federally listed endangered salmon species, and one in four oysters sold in the United States come from Twin Harbors. The coastal community of Westport hosts the largest fish landing in the state and fourth on the west coast. Tourism is an important economic engine because of the beautiful beaches and forests and the abundance of wildlife they support. Twin Harbors is also home to the Quinault Indian Nation, the Confederated Tribes of the Chehalis, and the Shoalwater Bay Indian Reservation. However, the Grays Harbor estuary and associated ocean beach shorelines are extremely fragile and are currently experiencing widespread retreat and erosion. Increasing demands for water for municipal uses, fisheries, agriculture, industrial and recreational uses greatly affect the water resources of these basins.
