Shoreline Naturalization and Dock Proposal

The project location is a single family residence along Moses Lake. Approximately 108 feet of failing bulkhead was replaced with a naturalized shoreline consisting of terraced native soils, basalt rock, and a fabric encased soil lift founded on an armored toe. The shoreline was then planted with native shrubs and trees. A 16 foot section of the bulkhead on the south end of the shoreline was not removed. Instead, the bulkhead was lowered to the ordinary high water mark and a small amount of pea gravel was placed landward to create a swimming area.

At the north end of the property, a small dock was added adjacent to the existing covered moorage. The dock extends approximately 22 feet along the shoreline and three feet waterward over the existing shoreline. The bulkhead under the dock was replaced with riprap to stabilize the dock.
