Build NCC | Environmental Enhancements
Build NCC includes the restoration
of the San Elijo and the San Dieguito Lagoons.
The San Elijo Lagoon restoration
project is currently being coordinated with the Nature Collective (formerly
the San Elijo Lagoon Conservancy) and resource agencies. Lagoon restoration
will enhance wetland and upland areas, improve tidal flushing, and include
beach sand replenishment.
phase two of the San Dieguito Lagoon is anticipated to begin in 2021. This project
is being coordinated with the San
Dieguito River Park and resource agencies. The project will restore
approximately 154 acres of wetland habitat in the lagoon, ensure future
anticipated flood and sea level rise resiliency, and increase trail
connectivity and public access throughout the San Dieguito River Park.
In addition to restoring the San
Elijo and San Dieguito Lagoons, approximately 250 acres of open space and
sensitive coastal habitat has been preserved and/or enhanced as part of the NCC
During construction, limited
access to the lagoons and trails is anticipated. Some trails may have periodic
closures to ensure the safety of trail users. For the latest information on
lagoon trail closures, view the closure list.
