Estuarine restoration--Environmental aspects--Washington (State)--Samish Island

Abstract

The purpose of this environmental impact assessment is to assess and evaluate a restoration along the northeast side of Samish Island in Skagit Valley, WA. Freestad Lake, a human-made saltwater lagoon, is to be restored to a pocket estuary. Our environmental assessment team discusses the resulting effects on natural and built elements of the environment, with special focus on Earth, Water, and Plants & Animals. As it is in the interest of the land owner and all involved parties to reestablish pocket estuary functions, our team aimed to evaluate the effects of the proposed project on the environment and conclude with our recommendation.
