Comments Invited for Trestle Bay Restoration
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is seeking public comments on its draft Environmental Assessment and Finding of No Significant Impact for Trestle Bay Restoration Project.
Trestle Bay is a 628-acre bay located about six miles upstream of the Mouth of the Columbia River, in Fort Stevens State Park, Clatsop County, Oregon.
The Corps is proposing to construct an ecosystem restoration project at Trestle Bay. The preferred alternative is to construct a 900-foot opening along the south jetty root that provides adequate access to salmon and steelhead across the full range of the Trestle Bay habitat. The root is an 8,800-foot structure that prevents unfettered salmonid access to and from Trestle Bay.
The public comment period ends April 11, 2015.
