Old Mill Site

Category Overview

Washington is famous for its gorgeous and abundant waterways, from the Salish Sea to the Nisqually River, but many communities lack open public beaches and waterfronts where everyone can enjoy picnicking, swimming, paddling, boating, and angling. Water Access projects fund public shoreline access, boat launches, and fishing docks to create more opportunities for water recreation.

Project Highlights

The acquisition of 6.62 acres of shoreline property on Dyes Inlet will protect wetland, salt marsh and Clear Creek Estuary habitats and expand public access and public trail system around Dyes Inlet. Legal description of the acreage to be acquired is attached to this agreement as Attachment “A”.
