Imperial Beach Eagle and Times

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and California Department of Parks and Recreation announce the availability of a final environmental impact statement/environmental impact report (FEIS/EIR) for the Tijuana Estuary Tidal Restoration Program II Phase I (TETRP II Phase I) project. The project site is located within portions of both the Tijuana Slough National Wildlife Refuge (Refuge) and Border Field State Park (State Park), south of Imperial Beach in southwestern San Diego County.  

A Record of Decision identifying the alternative selected for implementation will be published no sooner than 30 days after the Notice of Availability of the FEIS/EIR is published in the Federal Register. A copy of the FEIS/EIR can be found online: https://trnerr.org/about/public-notices/. 

The TETRP II Phase I project proposes to restore 82 to 87 acres of coastal wetland and upland habitats within the Tijuana Estuary on portions of the Refuge and State Park. Coastal restoration is proposed to reverse ongoing degradation of coastal resources essential to the long-term survival of migratory birds, fish, and other aquatic resources, while also increasing the Tijuana Estuary’s tidal prism to improve water quality and ecosystem health.
