The team took a trip upriver on July 30th to look at a culvert replacement at Hodges Creek, a tributary to the East Fork Millicoma River. This project is replacing an undersized culvert that had 90 feet of fill on top of it! The project requires important attention to proper drainage so all of the exposed sediment does not find its way into the river and the water stays clear.
Next stop was the oxbow restoration project further upstream on the East Fork. Read more about this project at CoosWA Executive Director Jon Souder’s blog post.
