In 1999 King County began an enhancement and restoration project along the Cedar River, in King County, WA. The goal of this project is to protect and restore Wetland 79, a high-quality oxbow wetland, one of the few still connected to the lower Cedar River.

This phase of construction involved connecting a spring fed pond to an open water wetland through a series of constructed channels and mounds.
