Natural Infrastructure

The San Francisco Baylands Ecosystem Habitat Goals Science Update, describes the many services that wetlands provide, including flood management, and provides recommendations for restoring and maintaining the Bay’s wetlands

To study and support cost-effective green infrastructure to reduce flood risk and stormwater runoff and maximize co-benefits, the Coastal Conservancy has been implementing the South Bay Salt Pond Restoration Project, a 15,000-acre wetlands restoration project that will build multi-benefit flood protection for Silicon Valley.

The California Department of Fish and Wildlife Department is also supporting a number of projects to restore or enhance wetlands and salt marshes through the Wetland Restoration for Greenhouse Gas Reduction Grant program.
