This project provides for the restoration and treatment of Yosemite Slough located on the western shoreline of South San Francisco Bay at Candlestick Point State Recreation Area. The project will improve water quality, restore essential wildlife habitat, and prevent erosion, thereby allowing increases in recreational opportunities and programs in the Bayview/Hunters Point area along the shoreline of the City of San Francisco. The restoration measures will include treatment of soil contamination arising from previous activities which impacts both public health and safety and protection of natural and cultural resources. The restoration project will include the following: 1. Treatment and/or removal of debris and contaminated fill from San Francisco Bay and 34-acre parcel. 2. Restoration of 12 acres of upland to tidally influenced wetland area. 3. Reduction in the amount of polluted runoff, as a result of restored wetlands catching and filtering water.
The project is funded from a combination of state bond funds and private donations.
