The Project will restore tidal flow from Suisun Marsh to two braided creeks which have headwaters in the Potrero Hills. The Project will remove berm and berm barriers along waterways in order to reinitiate the exchange of flows, sediment, nutrients, and wildlife. Non-native species will be removed and native plants will be established within the tidal and seasonal wetlands and the uplands to wetland transition zones. The Suisun Hill Hollow portion of the project will also involve fencing of the creek to exclude cattle and the installation of off-channel water sources for livestock. Grazing infrastructure improvments will allow cattle to perform the vegetation management function historically provided by native ungulates.

Project objectives are to develop final design and acquire necessary permits, increase hydrologic and hydraulic connectivity between upland, fluvial, and esturine habitat, reconnect the creek to its floodplain and facilitate the establishment of natural fluvial processes, restore natural form and function to the creeks and esturine systems and enhance habitat for special-status species that currently use the site or have potential to use the site.
