Bird Island Restoration Design and Permitting

Washington Department of Natural Resources

Renton, Washington

Bird Island

Hart Crowser led the biological design and permitting for this Washington Department of Natural resources (WDNR) restoration project within Gene Coulon Park in the City of Renton as part of the design team. We worked with PND engineers, WDNR, and the City of Renton to design a project that maximizes fish habitat improvements in a constrained area. Hart Crowser was responsible for all environmental documentation and coordinated the permit process for local, state, and federal permits. Project challenges included confined site boundaries, managing multiple stakeholders, and balancing habitat restoration with recreational opportunities.
