WENATCHEE — Chelan County has received nearly $800,000 from the state Department of Ecology to restore another of Nason Creek’s disconnected flood plains.

The county’s salmon-restoration project, currently estimated at about $2 million, will remove an old rock-and-earth levy and relocate Chelan County PUD utility poles to allow the creek to return to its original floodplain, Mike Kaputa, the county’s director of Natural Resources, said Monday.
