Dear Pierce County Surface Water Management Division,

Imagine if all of Clover Creek looked like this restored area, if all its concrete lining was torn up, its natural curves restored, and its native plants brought back. Native marine plants and wildlife would come back, and perhaps the salmon too one day. In addition, a winding, tree-shrouded creek making its way through the county, would be a reminder to all those that drive and walk past it of Pierce County’s dedication to the environment on which it rapidly develops. It would demonstrate that to the county, development and conservation are two goals that need not clash, but coexist.
