DNR defers timber sale near Oso landslide

OLYMPIA – The Washington State Department of Natural Resources has deferred a timber sale that is located approximately five miles southwest of the SR530 landslide. The deferred sale will undergo additional review to ensure there is no risk to public safety.

“In light of what the communities surrounding Oso have endured, I’ve directed department staff to review all the information on this nearby timber sale before moving forward,” said Commissioner of Public Lands Peter Goldmark. “Though we conducted thorough assessments of this proposed sale, it is prudent for us to take another look and reconfirm that this sale is properly configured.”

The 188-acre timber sale, known as Riley Rotor, was originally scheduled for auction on April 23, 2014.
