Skokomish Scheme Clears Major Milestone

The Skokomish River Basin Ecosystem Restoration Project is one step closer to construction after receiving approval to release the study’s proposed Chief’s Report from a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers board in Washington, D.C.

The Civil Works Review Board approved release of the project’s proposed Chief’s Report accompanied by the final Feasibility Report and Environmental Impact Statement during a milestone meeting held in Washington, D.C. on August 25.

Next, the Feasibility Report and EIS will be reviewed by Federal and state resource agencies during a 30-day review period to begin this fall. Additional information will be provided once the review period dates have been confirmed.

The plan includes several projects including a levee removal, placement of large woody debris, wetland restoration at two sites, and a side channel reconnection.

Once constructed, the project will restore an estimated 280 acres of habitat for fish and wildlife species in the Skokomish River Basin.
