Document Description
Alter the stream to implement the Tijuana River Valley Invasive Plant Control Program. The project involves the control of three invasive plant species within the Tijuana River Valley including a natural riparian corridor and salt marsh. The three invasive species are giant reed, castor bean, and salt cedar. The objective of the project is to enhance the native riparian and salt marsh habitats by removing these exotic species. The species are spread throughout the Tijuana River Valley and cover approximately 198 acres or 6% of the valley. The invasive species will be controlled through a combination of physical and chemical methods. In most cases, the plants will be cut and their stumps or resprouting rhizomes will be sprayed with an appropriate herbicide. Cut stems will be disposed of on-site, or in the case of large amounts of giant reed, will be removed by a paper and pulp milling company. Monitoring and retreatment of control areas will occur for three to five years. The project will be implemented in phases. Native riparian habitats found on site include extensive willow woodlands, mulefat scrub, and salt marsh.
