Group Description

Dedicated to the improvement of water quality and wetland habitat in Budd Inlet of South Puget Sound Washington by the restoration of 260 acres of wetland estuary. This wetland was destroyed when the Army Corp of Engineers placed an earthen dam at 5th Avenue, on the Capitol Campus in 1951. This created the artificial reservoir now known as Capitol Lake. This lake has many worsening problems and contributes to the very poor water quality of Budd Inlet.
Capitol Lake is not sustainable and is filling in with an average of 35,000 cubic yards of sediment every year. It will become a swampy marsh without costly and never ending dredging. Milfoil and Purple Loosestrife require toxic pesticides to control. These invasive plants are not found in saltwater estuaries.
Please add your voice to those who wish create a showcase wetland restoration project on our Capitol Campus in Olympia, Washington.
