Planning for the second phase of wetland restoration, public access and flood protection projects for the South Bay Salt Pond Restoration Project, a multi-agency effort to restore 15,100 acres of former commercial salt ponds in South San Francisco Bay. This project is the largest wetland restoration project on the West coast of the United States, and has already achieved multiple successes in Phase I implementation since the property was transferred from Cargill to the state and federal fish and wildlife agencies. The overall project provides an on-going and unique opportunity to restore critical habitat on a landscape scale, contribute to the recovery of threatened and endangered species, improve water quality in the Bay, and increase the resiliency of our coastline to sea-level rise.
