Document Description
The Lookout Slough Restoration Project would restore within the project site approximately 3,000 acres of tidal marsh that would help satisfy the Department's obligations under Reasonable and Prudent Alternative (RPA) 4 of the 2008 United States Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) Delta Smelt Biological Opinion (BiOp) and is consistent with RPA 1.6.1 of the 2009 National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) Salmonid Bi Op for the coordinated operations of the State Water Project and the Central Valley Project. The Proposed Project would create habitat that is beneficial to wildlife including Delta Smelt, giant garter snake (GGS), and other fish and wildlife species, and widen a portion of the Yolo Bypass to increase flood storage and conveyance, increase the resiliency of levees, and reduce flood risk.
