The old dam on Cedar Creek, just over the hill from our place, has been targetted as one of the "Salmon and Trout Recovery Projects" in Washington State. After years of debate and planning, this year the dam finally had to come down. It's remembered by many of us as a picturesque pond and man-made waterfall area. My brother and I volunteered our property as the place in which the over 30,000 cubic yards of sediment would be disposed at, since we are right across the road. His field got most of the dirt and gravel. Looks like it may be a fun area to try and drive across in the spring. I got both my mud pits filled in for free with some of the dirt upon my request. I also volunteered the back corner of my place for them to dig and bury the concrete sections of the dam. In exchange, I'm getting my road repaired and my stumpy area levelled (the new spot for where all my parts rigs are going, therefore clearing out the junky look of my main field). Here's my new spot for my parts rigs. They can't say I didn't do my part for the environment. Now, I wonder if those Bull Trout that never existed in the creek will "return" now that the dam is gone.
