Los Cerritos Wetlands Authority
Overview of Process
esassoc.com
Los Cerritos Wetlands Authority
Project Goals and Objectives
• Restore tidal wetland process and functions to the
maximum extent possible
• Maximize contiguous habitat areas and maximize the
buffer between habitat and sources of human disturbance.
• Create a public access and interpretive program this is
practical, protective of sensitive habitat and ongoing oil
operations, economically feasible, and will ensure a
memorable visitor experience.
esassoc.com
Los Cerritos Wetlands Authority
Project Goals and Objectives
• Incorporate phasing of implementation to accommodate
existing and future potential changes in land ownership and
usage, and as funding becomes available.
• Strive for long-term restoration success.
• Integrate experimental actions and research into the
project, where appropriate, to inform restoration and
management actions for this project.

Opportunities and Constraints
Identified in Conceptual Restoration Plan:
• Topography/Landforms/Soils
• Tidal Exchange/Local Watersheds/Hydrology
• Ecology
• Climate Change
• Infrastructure
• Human Interaction
• Regulatory/Implementation
Additional considerations for developing Optimized
Alternative:
• Flood management
• Land ownership
• Phasing

Los Cerritos Wetlands Authority
North Area
• Parcel restored and oil operations removed consistent with
the Los Cerritos Wetlands Oil Consolidation and
Restoration Project proposed by Beach Oil Minerals
Partners (BOMP)
• Northern portion includes restoration in the “near term”
• Southern portion includes restoration in the “long term”
esassoc.com
Los Cerritos Wetlands Authority
Overall Phasing – Central Area
esassoc.com
Los Cerritos Wetlands Authority
Central Area
• Connecting to SGR achieves goal of restoring tidal marsh
processes and functions
• If breaching SGR levee, need new flood protection
• LCWA property available now, but need to protect oil
infrastructure in place
• Long Beach property available in the future; oil
infrastructure will be removed

• Assumed Bryant property could be restored (next to Zedler
marsh) in Phase 1
• Callaway marsh would be restored once Haynes Cooling
Channel is decommissioned (Phase 2)
• Signal Hill property would likely not be restored until long
term

Last Public Workshop – Public Access
• Guidance from public:
− Minimize impacts to habitat
− Perimeter trails with viewpoints
− Restricted access to trails within marsh
− Passive access
− Minimize parking
• Approach:
− Consistent with CRP and Stewardship Program Vision Plan
− Consistent with public input from Workshop #1
− Utilize the surrounding uplands and levees
− Keep public access on the perimeter
− Connect to existing trails

CEQA OVERVIEW
esassoc.com
Los Cerritos Wetlands Authority
Program vs Project EIR
• Project-level EIR:
generally focuses on
environmental changes
caused by a project
(including planning,
construction, and
operation).
• Program EIR: generally
looks at the broad policy
of a planning document
and may not address
potential site-specific
impacts of the individual
projects within the
planning document.

Los Cerritos Wetlands Authority
After a Program EIR…
• Individual projects can “tier” off of Program EIR
− Use previous analysis
− Focus only on project-specific issues
− If within the scope of the program, no new CEQA doc
required, but must implement any mitigation
measures
• Over time, the existing setting may change and
certain analyses (like bio surveys) would need to be
redone
− But Program EIR provides benefit of base analysis
esassoc.com
Los Cerritos Wetlands Authority
Optimized Restoration Alternative Planning Strategy
• Develop Optimized Restoration Alternative for program-
level EIR
• Focus on near-term implementation areas
− Provide more details to support EIR and implementation
• Less detail on long-term areas, since additional
environmental analysis will be needed after 20+ years

  • 10. esassoc.com Los Cerritos Wetlands Authority RESTORATION DESIGN
  • 11. esassoc.com Los Cerritos Wetlands Authority Overview of Process
  • 12. esassoc.com Los Cerritos Wetlands Authority Project Goals and Objectives • Restore tidal wetland process and functions to the maximum extent possible • Maximize contiguous habitat areas and maximize the buffer between habitat and sources of human disturbance. • Create a public access and interpretive program this is practical, protective of sensitive habitat and ongoing oil operations, economically feasible, and will ensure a memorable visitor experience.
  • 13. esassoc.com Los Cerritos Wetlands Authority Project Goals and Objectives • Incorporate phasing of implementation to accommodate existing and future potential changes in land ownership and usage, and as funding becomes available. • Strive for long-term restoration success. • Integrate experimental actions and research into the project, where appropriate, to inform restoration and management actions for this project.
  • 14. esassoc.com Los Cerritos Wetlands Authority Opportunities and Constraints Identified in Conceptual Restoration Plan: • Topography/Landforms/Soils • Tidal Exchange/Local Watersheds/Hydrology • Ecology • Climate Change • Infrastructure • Human Interaction • Regulatory/Implementation Additional considerations for developing Optimized Alternative: • Flood management • Land ownership • Phasing
  • 15. esassoc.com Los Cerritos Wetlands Authority Overall Phasing

  • 35. esassoc.com Los Cerritos Wetlands Authority CEQA OVERVIEW
  • 36. esassoc.com Los Cerritos Wetlands Authority Program vs Project EIR • Project-level EIR: generally focuses on environmental changes caused by a project (including planning, construction, and operation). • Program EIR: generally looks at the broad policy of a planning document and may not address potential site-specific impacts of the individual projects within the planning document.
  • 37. esassoc.com Los Cerritos Wetlands Authority Program vs Project EIR • Project-level EIR: generally focuses on environmental changes caused by a project (including planning, construction, and operation). • Program EIR: generally looks at the broad policy of a planning document and may not address potential site-specific impacts of the individual projects within the planning document.
  • 38. esassoc.com Los Cerritos Wetlands Authority After a Program EIR… • Individual projects can “tier” off of Program EIR − Use previous analysis − Focus only on project-specific issues − If within the scope of the program, no new CEQA doc required, but must implement any mitigation measures • Over time, the existing setting may change and certain analyses (like bio surveys) would need to be redone − But Program EIR provides benefit of base analysis
  • 39. esassoc.com Los Cerritos Wetlands Authority Optimized Restoration Alternative Planning Strategy • Develop Optimized Restoration Alternative for program- level EIR • Focus on near-term implementation areas − Provide more details to support EIR and implementation • Less detail on long-term areas, since additional environmental analysis will be needed after 20+ years
