SSB 6147 in committee today. Bulkhead bill.

The bulkhead bill, SSB 6147 has an important vote in the House Rural Development, Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee scheduled for 10:00 a.m. on Friday, February 28th.

SSB 6147 establishes a process where replacement shoreline armoring would be required to consider using the least impacting shoreline protection technique — for example, using woody debris and natural green armoring rather than hard concrete.

I have documented the benefits of green armoring. If you want to see a short 2 minute video about a group of homeowners in Dungeness Bay who have benefited from green armoring over bulkheads and riprap, check this out. Won’t take much of your time. And if you feel like supporting this bill, call or write today to Representatives Chapman and Tharinger, along with Senator Kevin Van de Wege.
