The purpose of this project is to manage the Carmel River Lagoon's water level each spring to maximize the volume of freshwater in the lagoon at the beginning of the summer dry season. The project purpose is to enhance habitat for fish and wildlife. To raise the lagoon level the sandy beach separating the lagoon from the ocean will be modified each spring using bulldozers to increase the height of the beach and create a high elevation outlet channel.
