Benthic Macroinvertebrate Monitoring at Seahurst Park 2010: Year 5 Post-Restoration of South Seawall Removal and Baseline for North Seawall Removal
This report describes monitoring of benthic invertebrates at Seahurst Park, located on Puget Sound in the City of Burien. A seawall on the south side of the park was removed in February 2005 and the intertidal beach restored. There is also a planned seawall removal scheduled to happen in 2011/12 on the north side of the park with similar restoration of the intertidal beach. Sampling at the south restored site and an adjacent reference beach has occurred pre-restoration in 2004, post-restoration in 2006, 2008, and now five years after restoration in 2010. Sampling at the north section in 2010 will serve as a baseline for future restoration and as a comparison to the south sites.
