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.

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.
