Document Title
Wetland Mitigation Bank at Pond 20 and Port Master Plan Amendment Project
Document Type
EIR - Draft EIR
Present Land Use

Document Description
The project includes two primary components: (1) project-level environmental valuation of the creation of a wetland mitigation bank within the District-owned portion of Pond 20, which was historically used as salt evaporation pond (Bank Parcel); and (2) program-level environmental evaluation of the incorporation of Parcels A, B, and C into the District’s PMP, and assign land use designations. The project-level component includes associated construction and long term operation and maintenance activities of the wetland mitigation bank within the Bank Parcel. Construction would be entirely within the existing berms of Pond 20. The District is proposing a PMPA to incorporate the Bank Parcel into the District’s Port Master Plan (PMP) and assign a land use designation of “wetlands.” For the program-level component, Parcels A, B, and C are District owned property; however, currently these areas are not formally incorporated into the PMP. Parcels A, B, and C are located immediately adjacent to Pond 20, but entirely outside of the Pond 20 berms, and would be assigned a “commercial recreation” land use designation.
