California Gives $6.5 million For Planning Ballona Wetlands Restoration

Conservationist in conflict over how to Proceed

The LA Times reported that California has allocated 6.5 million for planning a massive restoration of the degraded Ballona Wetlands.   However there is a conflict about what to do. The initial proposals called for the removal of concrete levees and  to truck out tons of sediment dumped on the property which would allow water from Ballona Creek and the sea to flow into the wetlands. However, there is opposition to this project, by conservationists who believe this  would disrupt rare birds and flowers that are already there.
