PROJECT LOCATION AND Description

This Ecosystem Restoration study is located in Santa Cruz County, California adjacent to the Port of Santa Cruz. The study area covers 2,200 acres of coastal watershed and includes seven miles of streams. The study involves collaborative watershed planning to restore passage for endangered anadromous fish, restore native riparian vegetation, improve water quality, improve connectivity of the upper habitat, and reduce erosion and sedimentation throughout the watershed. Additionally, the beneficial use of sediment from the stream and harbor may be part of a Regional Sediment Management (RSM) initiative.
