Images of wetlands areas of the Northwest Territories at Alameda Point in April 2012. Winter and spring rains collect in these low-lying areas near sea level to form wetlands. Ideal area for creating more wetlands and marshes, including permanent ones, to contribute toward replacing those lost around San Francisco Bay during the past century.
In addition to replacing lost wildlife habitat and the ability of wetlands to capture carbon dioxide (CO2) that contributes to global warming, an extensive wetland/marsh area could serve as the receiving area for rainwater diverted from Alameda Point's mixed-use business and housing area.
