One more update. The Humptulips has a major straying problem with Coho and Natural Origin Coho being overrun by hatchery Coho. It is bad enough that it could impact both Rec & Commercial bay fisheries. ( A/C/D ) For years the local community and agency staff ( in Particular Paul Seidel, Jim Scot, Hal Micheals ) tried to get a intake for Stevens water to reduce straying but Puget Sound had priority. Well in the past Governor's job package the intake was included but not much has been said so I asked for a update and the response is below and this is great news!

" We took bids Wednesday and Quigg Brothers of Hoquiam was the low bid at $1,110,000. This was somewhat higher than the estimate of $950,000, but well be awarding them the contract. We should have the contract executed in 3 weeks, and the contractor can start preparing for construction. Quigg is a good contractor and Im pleased they got the bid. "
