Give your input on what you would like to see the California Department of Fish & Game (CDFG) and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) to consider about the Ballona Wetlands as they analyze potential restoration designs.
The long-awaited restoration of the Ballona Wetlands officially kicked off this month with the release of notices by state and federal agencies overseeing the project. The California Department of Fish & Game (CDFG) and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) will prepare environmental reviews of potential designs for the wetlands and document their likely impacts on wildlife, water pollution, local traffic and other factors at the Ballona Wetlands Ecological Reserve.
The restoration project will restore, enhance and create native coastal wetland and upland habitats in the approximately 600‐acre Ecological Reserve. The reserve comprises previously filled and dredged coastal wetland and upland habitat that would be restored by improving water flows, removing invasive species and planting native vegetation.
The comment period for scoping of the environmental review ends on September 10, 2012. Members of the public are invited to talk to the Lead Agencies and tell them what needs to be analyzed in the environmental review at a scoping meeting at the Fiji Gateway.
