On May 14th the Contra Costa County Flood Control District, California Department of Water Resources , American Rivers and Friends of Marsh Creek Watershed partnered to host an event celebrating the Dutch Slough Restoration Project. The Dutch Slough Restoration site is one of the few remaining undeveloped areas along East Cypress Road in Oakley. DWR plans to take this former dairy farm and return it to its natural state by breaching the levee. Now that the permitting process is coming to a close, and the necessary permits have been issued, it was time to open up the site to the public so that they can see firsthand the benefits that will come from restoring this piece of the delta. With the cooperation of the surrounding landowners the celebration showed off the potential of the site.
