Please register in advance for this meeting

This webinar will describe the findings of a restoration feasibility study conducted to restore tidal connectivity and tidal lagoon habitats to the 219-acre Livingston Bay project site managed by the Whidbey Camano Land Trust. Restoration of Livingston Bay aims to re-establish ecosystem processes and provide productive rearing habitat for juvenile Chinook salmon. The analysis approach and findings are relevant to other locations where large-scale tidal restoration is being considered.

The feasibility study included assessments of the following:  Drainage Infrastructure, Noxious Weeds, Water Surface Elevation (tides and landward ditches), Hydrogeologic Evaluation, Coastal Assessment and Tidal Channels, and a comprehensive Cost-Benefit Analysis.

This project is associated with NTA 2018-0603.
