Sweetwater Creek, which crosses under a portion of State Route 3 in Belfair, was restored to its historical channel configuration on the west side of the highway. The project included removing two 90 degree bends which were part of previous development changes to the landscape. Log weirs were added to the streambed which created riffles and pools for a more natural meandering flow. Part of the restoration included removing garbage, tires and tanks which were embedded along the sides of the stream. Invasive knotweed was also removed, and will continue to be managed in the future. HCSEG partnered with the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation for this beneficial restoration project.
