Cascade River

The Cascade River, here as it flows near Marble Creek Campground in August 2014, has been nominated to receive a designation that would grant it special environmental protections.

The Cascade River may receive additional environmental protections later this year.

Under the federal Clean Water Act, states can designate certain bodies of water as Outstanding Resource Waters, which gives them the highest level of water quality-based protection in the state.
