Wood in the Snoqualmie River? King County hosting two meetings June 10 on new projects

Learn more about projects planned by King County that involve placing large wood in local rivers or streams at either of two meetings scheduled for June 10 in Issaquah.

Meetings covering the same subject matter are scheduled for 3 to 5 p.m. and again from 6 to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, June 10, at the Issaquah Hatchery, 125 Sunset Way, Issaquah.

King County uses large wood to improve habitat for fish and wildlife, as well as to redirect river currents and prevent erosion in levee repair and flood risk-reduction projects funded by the King County Flood Control District.

Presentations will include descriptions, schedules and impacts of 11 projects currently in the planning stage that include placing or recruiting large wood in rivers:

Three projects are planned for the Snoqualmie River basin – the Hafner Levee Setback, Winkelman Revetment Reconstruction, and the Sinnema Quaale Upper Revetment Reconstruction.

Interested citizens are encouraged to attend the meetings to learn about these projects, ask questions or make comments.
