California Department of Water Resources has developed a plan, including funding needs, for increasing the extent of their subsidence reversal and carbon sequestration projects to 5,000 acres by January 1, 2017.
In 2016, the California EcoRestore initiative was established by the California Natural Resources Agency to advance coordination and implementation of habitat restoration projects including subsidence reversal and carbon sequestration projects. The California EcoRestore program plans to create 3,500 acres of managed wetlands that would support carbon sequestration. The Subsidence Reversal and Carbon Sequestration Delta Plan performance measure (PM 5.2) tracks the implementation of these projects.
