Description

NOTE: You must FIRST register for the Second National Living Shorelines Technology Transfer Workshop before you can register for this Field Session.



Arrowhead Marsh and The Oro Loma Horizontal Levee Project

We will be making several stops during the morning starting with a visit to Arrowhead Marsh, a low elevation marsh along the urbanized shoreline near Oakland. We will review the challenges and planning considerations for addressing SLR and relating them to special-status species protection and invasive Spartina control.

The Oro Loma Horizontal Levee Demonstration Project is a full-scale pilot of a sea level rise adaptation project, designed to provide multiple benefits. These include flood protection, expansion of upland transition habitat (high ground during peak surge events), improved San Francisco Bay water quality, and lower costs compared to traditional hard infrastructure barriers. It is located on the southern edge of the existing water pollution control facility jointly owned by Oro Loma and Castro Valley Sanitary Districts. Instead of a vertical wall to protect against storm surges, the horizontal levee is designed to use vegetation on a gentle slope to protect against sea level rise, wind-wave run up, and erosion. The native plants and wildlife that live on horizontal levees can thrive and provide valuable habitat while helping to further process treated wastewater. Come and learn about the multi-disciplinary nature of this project and the lessons learned to help combat sea level rise in San Francisco Bay



Registration includes transportation to and from the Hilton Oakland Airport Hotel, as well as a boxed lunch. Please contact Donna Ball at dball@savesfbay.org with any dietary requests.
