Project: Los Cerritos Wetlands Planning and Restoration Project

Description: The Los Cerritos Wetlands Authority (LCWA) owns the Los Cerritos Wetlands, which is one of the last remaining estuarine systems in southern California, located in the Cities of Long Beach and Seal Beach. The LCWA recently adopted the Final Los Cerritos Wetlands Complex Conceptual Restoration Plan (CRP) in August 2015 with the next step being environmental review of the CRP. The LCWA is seeking grants funds to complete the environmental review of the CRP which is required to satisfy the California Environmental Quality Act and the National Environmental Policy Act. Environmental review of the CRP’s three proposed alternatives or a hybrid alternative may result in joint Environmental Impact Report and Environmental Impact Statement. RMC Objective: prioritize multi-beneficial and multi-jurisdictional ecosystem and watershed protection projects in accordance with statewide priorities.
