 Gravel bar at upstream end of island, with main channel of Stillaguamish in view.Project Goals & Benefits
Snohomish County Public Works proposes to construct two engineered log jams on the South Fork Stillaguamish River. The log jams would divert some of the river flow in order to restore a side channel that has filled in with sediments. The side channel is important refuge and rearing habitat for juvenile salmon. Other project elements to facilitate side channel restoration include:

  • Creating two pilot channels at either end of the side channel
  • Removing vegetation within the side channel
  • Installing a series of flood fences to keep the side channel open
