Lower Baker Developed Recreation Plan for Puget Sound Energy Baker River Hydroelectric Relicensing Project

Owner: Puget Sound Energy

Client: Van De Vanter Group


Mayfly provided grading and stormwater design through 50% construction drawings for an existing 7-acre undeveloped recreation site on Lake Shannon.  Site improvements included a new 250’ concrete boat launch, site access and parking that addressed disability access, as well as toilets, picnic shelters and permit support.  Permits required for this project included Skagit County Shoreline, DOE Stormwater Report, building permits and SWPPP plans.    The boat ramp design addressed the reservoir’s large variation in water levels and included a wide ramp design that allowed vehicles to turn around, preventing excessive backing up while launching.  Design will move forward as adjacent improvements are completed.
