Document Description
This IS/MND evaluates the environmental effects of a tidal marsh restoration project through sediment addition in the Elkhorn Slough Ecological Reserve. It includes the restoration of 147 acres of vegetated tidal salt marsh, ecotone, and native grasslands. The project site includes 104 acres of former tidal marsh that have experienced approximately two feet of subsidence and no longer support extensive areas of vegetated marsh. It also includes up to 43 acres of ecotone and ruderal grassland. The overall approach would use imported and onsite sediments to raise marsh and mudflat elevations and restore tidal marsh habitats in these areas. The elevation of the new marsh would be just over Mean Higher Water and the ecotone and grassland would be planted with native ecotone and grassland plants.
