Description The construction of a reservoir at Wymer is one of four surface water storage projects proposed in the Yakima River Basin Integrated Water Resource Management Plan. The other projects are Bumping Lake enlargement, accessing Lake Kachess inactive storage, and appraisal of the potential for interbasin transfer of water from the Columbia River.

Water for Wymer Reservoir will be pumped from the Yakima River, creating a new, 162,500 acre-feet, off-channel storage facility in the intermittent stream channel of Lmuma Creek, which enters the Yakima River approximately 8 miles upstream of the Roza Diversion Dam.
