The Marine Patrol is responsible for patrolling the waters of Chelan County for the purpose of preventing crime, enforcing applicable federal law, state law, and county ordinances. In addition, Marine Patrol is responsible for performing rescue operations for persons and vessels in distress, assisting other divisions and agencies as needed, investigating marine accidents and incidents, and removing objects from the water that present a hazard to the boating public. The Marine Patrol is fully operational during the traditional boating season, May 1st to September 30th. The remainder of the year, the unit is on an as-needed-basis.
EDI is a private, western Canadian company incorporated in 1994, with offices in Whitehorse, YT, Prince George, Nanaimo and Vancouver BC, and Grande Prairie AB. Areas of specialization include aquatic and terrestrial biology, environmental assessment, erosion and sediment control, environmental monitoring and permitting, habitat mitigation and compensation, and training.
EDI recently purchased a 23 ft. Silverstreak center console paired with a 300 HP Yamaha to be based out of its Whitehorse office. EDI uses the boat to provide support for their commercial dive crew and to conduct freshwater fisheries assessments, monitoring and baseline data collection on the large, remote lakes in the Yukon and northern BC. Working in such remote settings during all sorts of weather conditions, EDI required a durable boat that could stand up to the rigors of such an environment.
