Restoration of urban intertidal wetlands typically involves the return of tidal flow to diked or gated land, the removal of dredge spoils to lower elevations, and/or the replacement of invasive plant species (e.g., Phragmites australis) with preferred marsh plants. Restoration or enhancement of preferred vegetation and hydrology is expected to net an overall improvement in habitat quality for native wetland habitat.
