Starting the week of Feb. 4, Shelton residents will see trucks full of sand and gravel heading to the Sierra Pacific Mill site on the Shelton waterfront.
The trucks will be stockpiling the clean sediment adjacent to the mill site in preparation for a habitat restoration project slated for the harbor later this spring. The material is coming from a gravel mine on Dayton Airport Road.
The sediment is part of the next phase of the restoration of the Goldsborough Creek saltmarsh. The Squaxin Island Tribe and South Puget Sound Enhancement Group are overseeing the restoration.
The sediment transport is expected to continue through March.
For any questions, contact Scott Steltzner, Environmental Program Manager for the Squaxin Island Tribe, at 360-432-3803 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
