USA: Comments Invited on Skokomish River Restoration Study
Officials from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Skokomish Indian Tribe and Mason County are seeking public comments on the Draft Feasibility Report and Environmental Impact Statement for the Skokomish River Basin Ecosystem Restoration Study.
Officials plan to hold a public information meeting to discuss the proposal for Federal action and the alternatives considered as a result of the Ecosystem Restoration Study.
The purpose of the Skokomish River Basin Ecosystem Restoration Study is to evaluate significant ecosystem degradation in the basin, to formulate, evaluate and screen potential solutions to these problems and to recommend a series of actions and projects for construction.
Mason County and the Skokomish Indian Tribe are the non-federal project sponsors working with the Corps to complete this feasibility study.
Public comments on the proposed plan and alternatives will be considered as the Corps works toward completing a basin-wide restoration plan.
