Salmon Overlay

The Salmon Overlay to SEWIP (PDF) was prepared in response to changed circumstances and to respond to the listings of anadromous salmonids under ESA. The Salmon Overlay is a tool to aid jurisdictions in responding to ESA and developing an appropriate management plan for the estuary as a component of a basin-wide management strategy for recovery of listed species.  

The Salmon Overlay was incorporated by reference in the city's Shoreline Master Program (SMP). The Salmon Overlay IVA model is used when mitigating for impacts to tidal wetlands.
