Continue to restore degraded fish habitat, via projects in Lead Entities' four-year work plans Protect and/or restore critical habitat for salmon populations.
This project provides support to the overall recovery of the Snohomish River Estuary, a critical habitat for salmon populations, by addressing and removing derelict vessels. Derelict vessels negatively affect salmon population by producing point sources of pollution; both toxics and nutrients. This project will also remove harmful structures from critical riparian habitat salmon population utilize on the Snohomish River. Snohomish County Marine Resources Committee (MRC) will work with Department of Natural Resources (DNR) under RCW 79.100 to prioritize and remove derelict vessels. This project addresses the Chinook Vital Sign 7.1.
