U.S. EPA Celebrates Earth Day at Breuner Marsh in Richmond


U.S. EPA Regional Administrator Jared Blumenfeld announced on Earth Day nearly $5 million in EPA grants to state and local agencies to restore water quality and wetlands throughout the San Francisco Bay watershed at a ceremony held at Breuner Marsh (Richmond, Calif.)

The Breuner Marsh restoration will create and restore more than 160 acres of wetland and upland habitat at Breuner Marsh along the Point Pinole Regional Shoreline in Richmond. The project will create a self-sustaining wetland complex that will filter polluted run-off, support native plant and animal species, and protect against projected sea level rise in the next century.
