2013 Water Quality Report
City of Omak
To solve the mosquito problems, there is a volunteer committee that has been working for the past year on the formation of a mosquito control program for all of the towns from Okanogan to Oroville. These volunteers are identifying the areas that need to be included in the proposed district, and will be working with the County Commissioners to place the issue of formation of a Mosquito Control District on the ballot.
Anyone interested in helping with the Mosquito Control District is encouraged to call Omak City Hall, and ask to be included on the list for notification of meetings.
In the meantime, there are many things each homeowner can do to prevent the hatching of mosquitoes, and improve their own comfort and that of their neighbors.
We're pleased to provide you with this year's Annual Water Quality Report. We want to keep you informed about the monitoring, and quality of your water. Our goal is and always has been, to provide to you a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. Eastside, Northeast, Okoma, and OWP Wells are supplying the City's drinking water.
We are excited for the 2nd annual Dog-Only-Swim. It will be held at the City Pool after the pool season is over. The event will be on Saturday, August 23rd from 12 pm until 4 pm. Dogs, bring your owners and come enjoy a refreshing swim, a hot dog barbecue, local vendors, pet photos and give-away prizes. It promises to be a doggone good time.

The Carlton Complex fires started on July 14, 2014 by lightning and made significant runs in many of our communities consuming 256,108 acres and approximately 300 homes in its path and destroying critical infrastructure. Governor Jay Inslee has directed the state Department of Commerce to release $150,000 from the Governor's Strategic Reserve Fund to support local economies affected by the Carlton Comlplex fire and the subsequent ongoing business related impacts of that event. The Economic Alliance of Okanogan County has been contracted to administer these funds.
An agency will be contracted to immediately create and launch a County-wide media and communications plan and possibly other services to inform the public that area businesses and attractions are open for business, easily accessible and safe to travel to.
