Contractor to send logs, debris down Elwha River Friday

Barnard Construction, contractor for the removal of Elwha and Glines Canyon dams, plans a release of logs and large woody debris from the Lake Aldwell reservoir into the lower Elwha River.

On the afternoon of Friday, Oct. 28, about 20 large logs will pass through the temporary diversion channel and be naturally transported downstream.

Falling trees and other debris that naturally enter the river also can be transported downstream on a daily basis.  

Fisherman and other users are advised to be cautious and to watch for floating wood, just as they would on other Olympic Peninsula rivers.
