In February 1991, the Habitat Investigations Program of the Coastal Zone and Estuarine Studies (CZES) Division, in cooperation with the U.S. Navy, began monitoring to assess environmental conditions at the project site before, during, and after fuel pier replacement. Major elements of the program include water quality, eelgrass distribution and density, juvenile salmonid migrations, and fish abundance.
