An important step in the design process is defining restoration objectives. This task was undertaken by a panel of experts, drawn from the fields of estuarine ecology, hydrology, coastal geomorphology and water quality, with special expertise in the small, coastal drainage systems of southern California. The scientific panel worked with ESA to develop recommendations and fundamental design parameters to guide development of the conceptual plan. The technical team then performed several forms of analysis, including modeling of potential restoration scenarios, to further define design parameters and desired characteristics of the restoration plan. Design consideration include assumptions on future climate change and sea level rise scenarios, as well as a range of potential changes in the watershed upstream.
Throughout the entire design and planning process, Laguna Ocean Foundation and the California Coastal Conservancy are overseeing and directing the efforts of the technical design team to ensure that the Conceptual Restoration Plan succeeds in meeting the expectations of the Coastal Conservancy grant, Laguna Ocean Foundation’s mission, and other supporters and funders.
After the presentation of the concept plan to the public and after public input is considered, the final step will be to finalize the plan in a formal report to the California Coastal Conservancy to be completed in early 2018.
