CDFW Releases Final EIR for the Ballona Wetlands Restoration Project

Under the California Environmental Quality Act, the California Department of Fish and Wildlife(CDFW) has released the Final Environmental Impact Report(EIR) for the Ballona Wetlands Ecological Reserve(BWER). The report was produced by CDFW lead, the State Coastal Conservancy and The Bay Foundation.

The Ballona Wetlands were once an approximate 2,000-acre expanse of marshes, mud flats, salt pans and sand dunes that stretched from Playa del Rey to Venice and inland to the Baldwin Hills. Today, BWER is less than 600 acres of open space, all that remains of the former wetlands, now owned by the people of California and managed by CDFW. -CDFW
