The Huntington Beach Wetlands Conservancy will prepare 60% and final restoration design plans, complete necessary studies for permitting, and secure permits for restoration at Newland Marsh, a 44.8-acre tidal wetland. The Project will create a culvert connection to the HB Channel to convey muted tides and sea water through the marsh, create a tidal channel network to distribute water throughout the marsh, and install flood protection berms along the perimeter of the marsh, which will be planted with salt marsh vegetation.
