tidal salt marsh
  Tidal salt marsh in southern California.

Condition A of the SONGS coastal development permit requires the creation or substantial restoration of at least 150 acres of wetlands in Southern California as mitigation to compensate for the Bight-wide losses of marine fish standing stocks that occur as a result of the operation of SONGS Units 2 and 3. In June 1992, following an evaluation of eight sites throughout southern California, the CCC approved SCE’s selected restoration site, the San Dieguito Lagoon (SDL) in Del Mar.
