The June issue of Estuary News is now available online.
This issue explores the rainbow flavors of infrastructure — green, blue, living, nature-based, and multi-benefit. As regional regulators require more from municipalities on the stormwater management front, many are developing more specific plans, building demo projects, and expanding rain gardens, pervious parking lots, and tree wells.
This issue also describes the construction of the region’s fifth and largest living shorelines project at Giant Marsh near Point Pinole. Other stories cover the North Delta way of life, extreme measures to save the near-extinct smelt, and lessons learned from tagging migratory songbirds, among other topics.
