I saw this over on WTA. I don't know anything more about it than the trip report states. According to the report, it's a done deal and Gold Ck Pond may get "filled in."

I also found this information from the Kittitas Conservation Trust's website.

It's part of the Yakima Basin Integrated Plan to restore the entire watershed. I don't see in a very quick review of the several enivronmental documents where creating a marsh at the Pond site was expressly discussed in the original plan, but it makes sense, given the studies about Gold Creek dewatering due to less rain and perhaps other land uses.

Here is some additional info on the project -- reposted from the "Hyak" Facebook group

I imagine that you are all familiar with Gold Creek Pond... an ADA-accessible paved loop hike around a picturesque mountain pond atop Snoqualmie Pass. Unfortunately, it may be gone soon without your involvement!

Kittitas Conservation Trust (KCT) is hosting a design charrette on Thursday, December 13th to discuss conceptual design options for the area which could include the filling or partial filling of Gold Creek Pond. They would appreciate public input.

You can find more information about KCTs proposals for Gold Creek Valley and a letter regarding the plans for Gold Creek Pond from a Gold Creek Valley cabin owner at
https://skiturvalley.wordpress.com/2018/12/07/kct-and-gold-creek-pond-restoration/

If you would like to attend, please register here: https://www.kittitasconservationtrust.org/event/gold-creek-pond-restoration-design-charrette/

The charrette will take place from 9:30 AM to 3:30 PM and will be located at the Roslyn Masonic Hall - 120 W Pennsylvania Ave, Roslyn, WA 98941.
