Lake Cunningham: Wetland & Shoreline Restoration Prototype Project

Lake Cunningham: Wetland & Shoreline Restoration Prototype Project

This project supports the Design and Environmental Review for an Emergent Wetland to improve water quality and reduce overland fertilizer and waste inflows into Lake Cunningham. This project is restoring the historic landscape from the late 1800’s when the area was called Laguna Socayre (alternatively Laguna Seca). The project addresses three goals, 1) improve water quality through natural filtering processes, 2) offer visual amenity for existing walking trails along lake, and 3) advance the Department’s Strategic Goal of “Nature” through restoration of habitat.
