A First Look Back at the San Francisco Estuary Project

by Scott T. McCreary,
Cornelia Tietke,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: The Management of Coastal Lagoons and Enclosed Bays


This paper presents an initial retrospective look at the San Francisco Estuary Project (SFEP) from the standpoint of the senior author, who was involved in the project as a consulting environmental analyst, facilitator of land use policies and goals for wetlands monitoring, and in an ongoing role in a project to strengthen watershed-based planning in the estuary region. While much of the paper is descriptive, we offer several observation and pose questions which we believe merit further examination in a full-fledged review of the SFEP.
