About the chehalis river
The Chehalis River is a 126-mile long river that flows through western Washington State. It has two main tributaries, the East Fork Chehalis and the West Fork Chehalis. The river was an important resource for Native American tribes such as the Chehalis and Chinook for centuries before European settlers arrived. Today, the Chehalis River is used for a variety of recreational activities such as fishing, kayaking, and camping. It is also used for agricultural purposes, with farms and pastureland located along its banks. The river is home to several reservoirs and dams, including the Mossyrock and Mayfield Dams, which provide hydroelectric power and flood control for surrounding communities. Despite these measures, the Chehalis River is prone to flooding during heavy rain events.
