Project Summary:

Great Ecology is supporting Resource Environmental Solutions (RES) - the bank sponsor - in the development of the Newark Slough Mitigation Bank in Alameda County, CA. The bank has proposed restoring tidal flow to a former salt pond in an approximately 65-acre area of the San Francisco Bay. The bank will re-establish wetlands and create conservation habitat for Ridgway’s rail (Rallus obsoletus) and salt marsh harvest mouse (Reithrodontomys raviventris). Great Ecology is supporting planning, permitting, design and hydrology, climate change and sea level rise planning, and implementation planning for the proposed mitigation bank.
