Tidal Wetland Restoration
Tule Red Tidal Restoration Project restored 420 acres of marsh habitat on the eastern edge of Grizzly Bay in the Suisun Marsh. The project creates self-sustaining tidal marsh to benefit listed fish and wildlife species, including Delta Smelt, Longfin Smelt, and Salmonids. The project has been a collaboration between Westervelt Ecological Services, State and Federal Contractors Water Association, the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW), and many other resource agency partners.
The restoration of Tule Red will contribute to the 8,000-acre tidal marsh restoration requirements for the Central Valley Project and State Water Project Long-term Operational Criteria and Plan (OCAP) Biological Opinion.
