The Decker Island Tidal Restoration Project proposes to enhance 140 acres of tidal wetland, associated high marsh, and riparian habitats to benefit native special status species along the Sacramento River in Solano County. The site is currently an emergent wetland with some tidal connectivity. The proposed project will increase site water levels and flow, increase access for fish, inhabit the establishment of invasive vegetation, and enhance access to upland habitat.
