The wetlands and riparian habitat on the project site is difficult to flood and drain, and the uplands cannot be properly irrigated. Two lift pumps that supply water to the site are beginning to fail. To rectify these issues, the two pumps will be rehabilitated and a solar array constructed to generate enough electricity to cover 99% of the power needs. The project will contribute directly to the Central Valley Joint Habitat Venture’s goal of enhancing seasonal wetlands, riparian habitat and associated uplands.
