The Chelan County PUD is planning to spend upwards of a million dollars to address erosion issues in Chelan's Riverwalk Park, and in Entiat Park.

At the PUD Commission study session last Monday, folks with the PUD's Parks and Recreation department shared their plans for work they hope will happen this summer.

PUD Parks Manager Ryan Baker said that on the south shore of Riverwalk Park, the shoreline receded in three different areas, losing irrigation and a bench in the process.

Baker said the work is largely similar in Entiat Park:

Baker also outlined work for Wenatchee's Confluence Park this fall, tackling one thousand feet of the shoreline that eroded along the eastern shore; costs to fix that are estimated at more than two million dollars.

Also during the Commission's study session, the PUD's Teneille Hatmaker said the county's parks receive about three and a half million visitors per year. The PUD manages nine of Chelan County's sixteen parks.
