The final stage of the San Dieguito Wetlands Restoration project took place on September 29 when the last remaining spit of land was removed, allowing ocean tides to flow in and out, continuously replenishing the wetlands with nutrients and fish. Construction crews excavated 40,000 cubic yards of sand to clear the river channel.
