Description:
A 1950s gravel extraction pit had become a collection area for surrounding stormwater and groundwater covering four acres in a residential neighborhood. The pond flowed into Duck Creek, a salmon stream, and contributed turbid water, high levels of iron floc and low levels of dissolved oxygen to the stream. This project added clean fill material to create benches and varied habitat for fish, wildlife, and wetland vegetation to immobilize the iron floc, increase dissolved oxygen and improve the water quality. An interpretive trail winds through the wetland to educate the community on the wetland functions.
