Shoreline Substantial Development Permit / Shoreline Conditional Use Permit / Shoreline Variance: Minter Creek Hatchery
Applications: 958670, 958671, 958669
Applicant: Douglas Wiedemeier, Washington State Department of Fish & Wildlife

Planner:  Robert Perez, [email protected]

Request: The proposed project will bring the surface water intake(s) up to state and federal standards for screening and fish ladders (passage). There will be substantial long-term energy savings by eliminating the lower intake and transferring those water rights to the upper intake, as the upper intake is gravity fed. A second water line will be installed to allow water to be pumped back up to the upper intake during low flows to maintain minimum flows for fish. At the lower intake site, fish passage will be restored and native riparian vegetation will be established. The site is in the High Intensity and Conservancy Shoreline Environment and Rural Sensitive Resource (RSR) zone classification of the Key Peninsula Community Plan area, located at 12710 124th Ave. Ct. E. KPN, Gig Harbor, WA, in Council District #7.
