1 post tagged Hart Mine Marsh

MSCP Restoration site, Hart Mine Marsh was initially created by historic overbank flood flows from the Colorado River. With changes in the river system, including water operations and management, the dynamic processes that once maintained this marsh have been all but removed. Until recently, the marsh had no outlet, resulting in poor water quality and highly saline areas mostly dominated by invasive salt-cedar tree. The Bureau of Reclamation and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service entered into a long-term agreement under the Lower Colorado River Multi-Species Conservation Program to reconstruct the area. http://www.lcrmscp.gov/conservation/hart_mine_marsh.html
