Maury park pier dismantled

The pier at Maury Park, which juts out over the waters of the Maury Island Aquatic Reserve, was being torn down by county officials last week. The county decided to remove the pier because it was leaching toxic creosote into the waters of the Puget Sound, but divers mourn the loss of habitat for marine life the pier provided. - Courtesy photo
