White River RB 3.85 Levee Preservation Project
Pierce County Planning and Public Works completed a maintenance project on 780 liner feet of existing levee by the Sumner link trail. The project was located just south of 16th St E on the right bank of the White River at river mile 3.85. The landward side of the levee was reinforced with rock, topped with soil and will be planted with native plants. The maintenance project was completed as an interim measure to protect the bank from channel migration until the Lower White River Restoration project can be constructed.
