Document Description
CWF proposes to create new wetland habitat and enhance existing diked salt marsh wetlands on an approximately 207 acre site located on Outer Bair Island, Redwood City, San Mateo County. The wetland creation componet of the proposed project involves construction of approximately 34 acres of new seasonal pan habitat and 19 acres of associated high marsh transition habitat within an approxiately 53 acre upland area at the southwest corner of the project site. In addition, creation of 6 acres of tidal salt marsh habitat is proposed through the removal of an existing interior dike and the reestablishment of marsh plane elevations (i.e., approximately 4.0 - 5.0 feet). The enhancement component of the project involves restoring tidal circulation to approximately 148 acres of former tidal salt marsh habitat through the breach of an existing levee that surrounds the project site.
