The levee breach described in this 2009 article was completed last month. It is going to be interesting to see how the habitat develops and the water exchange occurs with tidal cycles and flood events. Years with heavy flows would result in flooding to 10 feet or more. Of course benefits to juvenile salmon and other native species are cited, but dominate non-native species will benefit most. I think we will see the breach site become a striper fishing hot spot.
