Commitment to tribal partners restores Shoalwater Bay Dune, protects Shaolwater Bay Tribe
Sideview profile of the culvert crossing built to complete repairs to the Shaolwater Bay Dune, on the Tokeland Peninsula, Washington, Sept. 29, 2022. Repairing the damaged dune to its pre-damage level of protection reduces coastal erosion, flooding, and coastal storm damage to the Shoalwater Reservation and the Shoalwater Bay Tribe. The newly restored dune incorporates dredged material from offshore to restore the degraded dune, cobble/boulder sized rock to dissipate storm waves, and vegetation and fencing to help control wind-blown erosion.
