White Slough Restoration
NOD - Notice of Determination
Present Land Use
Agriculture Exclusive - 60 ac with combining zone overlays for Flood Hazard, Riparian Habitat, and Transitional Agriculture
The White Slough Restoration Project will restore tidal marsh habitat on subsided, diked former tidelands to enhance native wildlife habitat, protect existing transportation infrastructure and beneficially reuse sediment. Sea level rise and dike failure currently threaten to convert subsided marsh in this area to mudflat. Tidal marsh will be restored on ~40 ac by first raising surface elevations to levels that will support marsh vegetation, and then breaching the dike around the Unit. Surface elevations will be raised by placing up to 200,000 cubic yards of clean sediment. Four existing tide gates in the northern portion of the Project Area will be modified to establish a muted tide cycle.
