Can you site a source on this supposed proposal to flood the Samish unit???? I sure as hell can't find any info to back this up. I have looked into it and there are no culverts on the Samish unit that block fish passage therefore little/no reason to spend the money to set back the dike and flood it for "salmon habitat".
I know it has been proposed in the past to manage Welts as a moist soil management unit which I personally would zero issues with as long as it was done correctly
There is a current proposal/plan (It' s a done deal) to do a wetland restoration on the 100 acres on the west side of the dike at the mouth of the Samish. This property needs it desperately, and (if done correctly
) will benefit waterfowl in the area greatly. Any improvement there would be an improvement. As it stands now the property has next to no value as wildlife habitat for anything other then coyotes.
