Collier Shoreline Restoration

The Squaxin Island Tribe and the South Puget Sound Salmon Enhancement Group spent weeks restoring a shoreline at the mouth of Hammersly Inlet. Here is a time lapse video of the project:

This project removed an 8-foot by 137-foot by 1.1-foot thick boat ramp and a 10-foot high 77-foot long boat basin that projected into the nearshore. Workers placed material consisting of 16 linear feet of rock and 21 linear feet of beach materiel in the basin. The project cost just under $200,000 ($195,975) with a $165,000 grant from the Washington State Recreation and Conservation Office.
