Document Description
Note: Review Per Lead The proposed project would enhance Los Penasquitos Lagoon through reconfiguration of the channel network in the lagoon to provide better freshwater management and enhanced tidal exchange/influence. The project would also identify vector and trails management opportunities. Beginning in 2013, an updated Lagoon Enhancement Plan was developed to provide guidance on restoring Los Penasquitos Lagoon habitats, protecting listed species, reducing threats to public health, and involving stakeholder groups with regard to coastal resource stewardship. Conceptual-level alternatives for restoring and enhancing the Lagoon's native habitats were developed as part of the process, and are identified in the updated Los Penasquitos Lagoon Enhancement Plan, which provides guidance over future design and implementation of lagoon improvements. In general, the conceptual-level alternatives focused on restoring salt marsh and transition habitats to allow for upslope migration of salt marsh in repsonses to sea level rise using various strategies.
