FOSS LAKE HABITAT MITIGATION
Highpointe Communities
Oceanside

Foss Lake is approximately 75 acres in size, and is one of the only inland alkali marshes in San Diego County.  We prepared mitigation and monitoring plans for an off-site mitigation land bank to offset the development footprint of housing developments.  Working closely with two separate biological consultants and government agencies, we developed grading designs and native plant palettes to enhance riparian vegetation around the lake.  We prepared the project plans and provided construction oversight.  Foss Lake is now preserved as an open space biological reserve.
