Historically, the area was tidal marsh and forest scrub-shrub habitat, interlaced by tidal channels, mudflats, and streams. The project area was cut off from the natural influences of the river and tides by levees, drained by ditches instead of stream channels, and stripped of its native vegetation. Through the cooperation of its many partners the first tidal flood was restored on the afternoon of August 28, 2015.
