Don Morse Park and Trail Redevelopment and Marina Dredging Environmental Services
City of Chelan
A redeveloped park on Lake Chelan used materials extracted by dredging for beach restoration and partially funded the project using a mitigation credit plan – all cost-saving solutions by The Watershed Company. A multidisciplinary team provided shoreline restoration design, dredge coordination, and permit facilitation for park redevelopment and marina expansion at Don Morse Park, a popular waterfront recreation area. Redevelopment included more than 50,000 cubic yards of fill below the OHWM to cover an eroding bulkhead and recreate an expansive public beach. Staff developed a sampling and analysis plan for the dredge area and worked with the Corps to finalize a suitability determination for re-use of extracted materials within the beach restoration area. Planners prepared application materials and coordinated all local, State, and federal permits, including the Corps, Ecology, WDFW, the City of Chelan, Chelan County PUD, and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.
