PORT OF EVERETT, WASHINGTON, WINS

AAPA 2001 ENVIRONMENTAL IMPROVEMENT AWARD

The Port of Everett’s Union Slough Saltmarsh Mitigation Project has been selected as the winner of the American Association of Port Authorities’ (AAPA) 2001 Environmental Improvement Awards Competition under the Mitigation Category.  The award will be presented to a representative of the Port of Everett on October 3 during the AAPA 2001 Annual Convention in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada.

In the spring of 2000, the Port selected earthwork contractor Grade, Inc. of Woodinville, Washington to implement the plans, with on-site work starting during the summer of 2000.  To minimize construction impacts, the majority of the earthwork was accomplished prior to inundating the site. “We learned a lot about creating wetlands,” said Jack Olson, recently retired Director of Engineering at the Port.  “Two factors—a very resourceful contractor, Grade Inc., and a dry winter—were critical to the process.  Tracked dump trucks were used to move the unstable material, and a track hoe with a 70‑foot boom was necessary for the dike breach operation.  We are pleased with the results.”
