Island to improve access and quality of habitat for juvenile salmonids. The project involves the removal of

1,400 linear feet of dike in 3 primary areas, 13 more minor areas, and the construction of 8 starter channels to

create a dendritic tidal channel network on the island betweenUnionand Steamboat Sloughs. This will impact

of Category I estuarine wetlands. Wood features will be installed to encourage habitat complexity. It is also

screens and turbidity curtains will be in place prior to any inwater work. Construction is scheduled for 2019.
