Salt River

Project Description:

This project is part of a larger project to restore the Salt River channel and tidal wetlands at Riverside Ranch near the mouth of the Salt River, and create an upslope restoration program to reduce sediment input. This project would acquire and protect property within the 100-year floodplain from future development. The project will create active or passive sediment management areas designed to allow sediment deposition to occur without compromising the channel's habitat and conveyance functions and to restore riparian habitat and/or wetlands.
