Enumclaw Patch: Council backs tribal creek restoration plan

The Puyallup Tribe of Indians gained support from the Enumclaw city council this week for the restoration of an important salmon stream From Enumclaw Patch:

The resolution, which passed 7-0, was more of a formalization of support for the tribe’s restoration project rather than a call for action on the part of the city, public works director Chris Searcy clarified.

The project is spearheaded through the Puyallup Tribe’s fisheries department with the intent on restoring and enhancing salmon habitat, Searcy said. Planning began during the previous administration and was the highest ranking project for the Puyallup River Watershed.
