Dutch Slough Project Area from CA Dpt. of Water Resources

On March 7th, EBCNPS submitted comments on the Dutch Slough Tidal Marsh Restoration Draft Supplement EIR. The SEIR was created to address the potential environmental impacts of proposed changes to the tidal wetlands restoration project in the Dutch Slough area at the mouth of Marsh Creek in Eastern Contra Costa County. EBCNPS’s letter raises concerns about the removal in this most recent document of plans to restore areas of upland and interior dune habitat as part of this project. The project area contains sandy soils and remnant Stabilized Interior Dune Habitat that is exceedingly rare today and which should be protected and managed for native habitat values.
