Potrero Hills Wetland Mitigation

SH7 poss loc E of SH1 webClient: Environmental Stewardship and Planning

The Potrero Hills Landfill is in the process of expanding its facilities.  The proposed landfill expansion will encompass 170 acres of land and will impact approximately 3 acres of wetland and pond habitat that serve as breeding habitat for the California Tiger Salamander (CTS).   Measures to mitigate impacts to CTS include both habitat conservation and wetland enhancements that focus on key species listed as threatened or endangered under the federal Endangered Species Act (ESA). 

Waterways is currently assisting Environmental Stewardship and Planning, Incorporated (ESP) in the planning and design of wetland habitat that includes seasonal ponds for CTS and vernal pool habitat for several ESA listed plant species.  Waterways’ tasks include topographic mapping, hydrologic and hydraulic analysis, and preparation of construction plans and specifications.
