Waterways Project in the News
Waterways helped design a levee breach and wetland restoration project along the Columbia River, returning many acres of pasture to wetland. The project created a new tidal channel with side pools for fish and a turtle mound. The restored wetlands provide habitat for salmon, frogs, and lots of other wildlife that live along the Columbia River. To see the article and video, please click here.
