Bahia Marsh Restoration

NOP - Notice of Preparation
Document Description
The project consists of activities designed to create maximum tidal marsh habitat, including successional brackish tidal marsh, and transitional habitat, plant and animal communities similar to historic tidal marshes of the Petaluma River, while maintaining and enhancing seasonal wetland, pond and upland habitat. Activities to remove impediments to tidal flows consist primarily of restoring (excavating) a complex system of tidal channels; lowering levees and inboard ground elevations; and creating levee notches, culverts, and breaches. Other activities to facilitate the restoration of tidal marsh and improve habitat include grading in some areas and reusing excavated materials to raise ground elevations in some areas.
