Document Description
The project is to assist CA DWR and U.S. Bureau of Reclamation in meeting their obligation of the 8,000 acre tidal restoration targets in the Reasonable and Prudent Alternative of the 2008 U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Delta Smelt Biological Opinion, and referenced in the 2009 National Marine Fisheries Service Salmonid Biological Opinion for continuing operations of the State Water Project and the Central Valley Project. The project may also serve as partial fulfillment of tidal restoration objectives under the forthcoming Bay Delta Conservation Plan. SFCWA proposes to convert existing agricultural lands to wetlands, creating about 1,672 acres of perennial emergent marsh (tidal).
