Managing Agency

Chelan County Public Utility District, PO Box 1231, Wenatchee, WA 98807. For additional information call (509) 661-4551 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. weekdays.

Chelan PUD is asking for the public’s help – PLEASE, Don’t feed the marmots. These common rodents have wreaked havoc on flower plantings, as well as causing fish habitat damage and riverbank destabilization along the rocky banks of the Columbia and Chelan Rivers. 

While these critters may look cute, they can carry diseases such as Sylvatic plague, spread by marmot fleas that can come into contact with domestic pets and humans. Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever is another disease spread by marmots from infected ticks. And, marmot droppings can carry cryptosporidiosis that can cause nausea and diarrhea.



Until further notice, a fire ban has been issued in Chelan PUD parks. Charcoal or wood fires are not allowed. Camping stoves and portable gas/propane fire pits are allowed.
