 CRESCENT BAR, WA - For the first time ever, you could be boating near Crescent Bar all year round! Grant PUD is dredging the boat channel in the Columbia River because of low water levels. After a community member requested the boat ramp be open year round during the dredging, Grant PUD offered to donated up to $10,000 for construction and administrative costs. The project, in total, would cost around $55,000.

Since then the community has rallied. A Go Fund Me account has so far raised nearly $36,000. However, the decision on whether the boat ramp stays open year round needs to be made by Wednesday, October 29th. The project still needs about $19,000 to go through.

If the goal is not reached, no donations from the account will be taken.
