WASHINGTON, D.C. — Eastern Washington Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) today announced the decision by the National Park Service to award a 10-year concessionaire contract for the Kettle Falls Marina.

“Outdoor recreation is part of life in Eastern Washington, and the Kettle Falls Marina has served our community for decades,” said Cathy. “I was proud to advocate directly to the National Park Service in support of a new contract and appreciate them following through. This announcement will provide long-term certainty for the marina and the thousands of people in Northeastern Washington who use it every year.”

NOTE: In early 2017, the NPS announced plans to close longstanding services at the Kettle Falls Marina. Shortly after the announcement, on February 8, 2017, Cathy sent a letter to Laura E. Joss, Pacific West Regional Director for the National Park Service, expressing her deep concerns.

On March 10, 2017, the NPS announced a one-year extension of services at the marina while evaluating Cathy’s concerns and the future of the marina.
