Document Description
The Winter Island Tidal Habitat Restoration Project is a tidal restoration project proposed by DWR located in Contra Costa County at the confluence of the Sacramento and San Joaquin Rivers. The project site is currently a muted tidal wetland that is blocked from tidal influence by water control structures and a levee system. The project would include the removal of the water control structures and excavation of an eastern channel to re-establish full tidal connections to the existing marsh and surrounding waterways and enhance aquatic and wetland habitat. The project is expected to benefit native special-status fish species and may provide habitat for special-status bird species.
