Kent's Riverview Park restoration project side channel now open
The Seattle District started construction of the Riverview Park Project, a $3 million project to build approximately 750 feet of new stream channel. Sponsored by the City of Kent, the new channel will flow through the middle of what will become a city park. This is the first side channel construction under the Green/Duwamish Ecosystem Restoration Project. The channel, which opened recently, will provide critical Chinook salmon rearing habitat and establish a winter refuge for fish during high flows in the main stem of the Green River.
