The Skookum Reach Project was completed in 2010, but was limited due to meeting FEMA and County requirements for no-net rise. The Saxon Reach project below Saxon Road Bridge, was completed in the summer of 2012, funded with SRFB funds. The Whatcom Land Trust has acquired several Port Blakeley properties in the area in recent years, and is in the process of negotiating with the landowner on the left bank across from the Skookum Hatchery. The Restoration Division has also been conducting road assessments and and sediment transport analysis in the Skookum Creek Watershed. Habitat objectives include: 1) Create and improve pool habitat by placing engineered wood logjams in known cool water refuge areas 2) Increase habitat quality and diversity throughout the reach by placing engineered logjams to encourage scour pool formation, promote stable vegetated island formation, and increase available cover; 3) Increase the stability of existing mid-channel islands by the construction of additional logjams.
