Station description

In the early 20th century Jimmycomelately Creek was disconnected from its floodplain, ditched and pushed to the edge of the valley. In 2005, one of the largest stream channel restoration projects in Puget Sound was completed on Jimmycomelately Creek. The restoration of Jimmycomelately Creek moved the channel back to the valley center, excavated a floodplain and reconnected the tidal energy of its estuary to the mouth of the creek. In addition, a road and log yard were removed from the estuary, restoring nearly 20 acres of saltmarsh. The Department of Ecology has monitored flows on Jimmycomelately Creek since October 1999 and has maintained a near-real time stream gage since August of 2002. In June 2005, with the restoration of the channel to its original location, Ecology moved the gage to its new location on the restored channel. Flow data from before the completion of the restoration project in June 2005 can be found at the 17C070 Jimmycomelately Creek nr Mouth web page by using the 'show historical' tab at the top of the station list on this page.
