The Lake Chelan Reclamation District (LCRD) provides domestic drinking water, wastewater and irrigation to our customers.
The Lake Chelan Reclamation District has been in the domestic drinking water business since 1922. The service area originally included only the downtown area of Manson and the Hyacinth Road with service to a couple hundred people. Now the District serves as many as 6,000 people in an area from Loop Avenue to Winesap Road. The LCRD diverts water directly out of Lake Chelan at two locations. The Manson Intake extends 100 feet out into Lake Chelan and pumps water out of Manson Bay. The Lakeshore Intake is located approximately 2 miles uplake from Manson and was started originally as an irrigation intake. It was later converted to a domestic intake in 1974. With the construction of the Water Treatment Plant in 1998, the system was changed and both intakes were piped to send lake water to the Water Treatment Plant prior to distribution in the system.
