Marine Sciences Team Shares International Award for Ecological Dock Design

November 2004
Congratulations to ETDís Heida Diefenderfer, Sue Sargeant, Ron Thom, and Amy Borde on receiving the Waterfront Center Award for their contributions to the Northwest Maritime Center. The center is refurbishing a derelict oil dock to accommodate vibrant educational activities and support restoration of the nearshore area; the ETD staff collaborated with architects Miller/Hull and stakeholders on the design of the new dock. The dock, located in Port Townsend, Wash., was one of eight projects worldwide to be honored. It was the sole awardee in the Environmental Protection and Enhancement category. The centerís awards program, now in its 18th year, is a juried competition to recognize outstanding urban waterfront efforts.
