Harper Estuary Restoration Project

Project Overview

The Washington State Department of Ecology, Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife, the Suquamish Tribe  and Kitsap County are partnering in this project to restore estuarine function to the Harper Estuary.

Washington Department of Ecology received funds to restore Harper Estuary. These funds are channeled through Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW), who is leading restoration of the estuarine habitat by removing fill and structures along the shoreline. Kitsap County is leading the design for replacement of the culvert and associated road embankment under SE Olympiad Drive - replacing the road with a 120 foot span bridge. The boat landing will be moved to another location within the estuary.
