Rody Creek Channel Stabilization Between 80th Street East and 72nd Street East

About the Project

Pierce County has initiated this project to reduce sediment input and loading into the Rody Creek system and receiving Clarks Creek water body, by stabilizing the channel bed from downcutting and stabilizing certain areas of ravine slopes from erosion.  

The project will also help to address Clarks Creek TMDL goals and objectives by helping to improve water quality to the receiving Clarks Creek stream system.

Several channel spanning log structures, timber frames and slash will be placed, to reduce the movement of sediment into the receiving downstream channel reach (below 72nd Street East).


  • Winter 2020: Permitting completed
  • Spring 2021: Final engineering design plans and specifications
  • Spring 2021: Construction easement acquisition (anticipated)
  • Anticipated Summer 2022: Construction

Note: The timelines noted above are subject to change and may vary.
