Qwuloolt Restoration Moves Ahead

The Qwuloolt Estuary Restoration Project is progressing very well.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ contractor Sealaska, Auburn, WA, uses tracked vehicles to finish up placing material on a levee for the Qwuloolt Project phase one.

This project, a partnership with the Tulalip Tribes of Washington, will restore about 360 acres of critical estuary habitat along the Snohomish River.

Phase one will construct a 4,000 foot setback levee to protect Brashler Industrial Park, the Marysville Wastewater Treatment Plant and residents surrounding the area.

Phase two, scheduled to begin June 2015, involves lowering 1,400 feet of the Ebey Slough dike and then excavating a 270 foot breach in it to allow tidal inundation.
