WDFW Dike Ring Removal

Approximately 2,000 feet of saltwater levee and ring dike, and approximately 7,500 cubic yards of material was removed surrounding an abandoned WDFW duck pond near the mouth of the Quilcene River. This project reestablished a more natural tidal function to two acres of previously isolated marsh, and reconnected the estuarine habitat. This project was completed in the late summer of 2008.
