San Diego Bay Restoration Project Gets Stimulus Money

California Recovery Task Force Director Cynthia Bryant says the state is getting $31 million in federal stimulus funds for nine coastal restoration projects.

One of the nine California projects receiving funds is in San Diego.

The South San Diego Bay Restoration project will get $2.9 million.

The money will be used to restore tidal circulation to former salt ponds, restore intertidal wetlands, and remove non-native vegetation and replace it with native estuarine plants.

The money is part of $167 million in federal stimulus funds that were allocated for 50 wetlands, fisheries, and habitat restoration projects in 22 states and two territories.
