Abstract: 
This report presents an analysis of existing conditions and projected future without project conditions that examines ecosystem needs and opportunities at the Morro Bay Estuary in Morro Bay, San Luis Obispo County, California. Ecosystem problems and restoration opportunities identified in the analysis are used in the preliminary screening of alternative improvemetn measures. This report identifies and presents a preliminary evaluation of potential structural and non-structural ecosystem restoration and aquatic habitat protection measures. The analysis supports the decision to proceed with the feasibility study as presented in the concluding section of the report, based upon the projected significant anthropogenic, sediment-induced change in estuary habitats. *NOTE: This is a Draft version. Information contained in this report should be treated as such. No final version was produced.

Abstract: 
In 2005, Pacific Watershed Associates (PWA) received a grant from the California Departmetn of Fish and Game (CDFG) to conduct an assessment of erosion and sediment delivery to streams along approximately 130 mi of road in the Chorro Creek and Stenner Creek watersheds, near San Luis Obispo, California. Under this contract, PWA developed estimates of future erosion risk; and developed detailed, site specific prescriptions, prioritized treatment plans, and cost estimates for upland road erosion control treatments to prevent and control sediment impacts to the streams supporting threatened southern steelhead. This report, summarizes the results of an assessment completed for 121 mi of roads and 5.36 mi of trails located on properties managed by 5 separate landowners. These property managers include Cal Poly State University (Cal Poly), California Army National Guard Camp San Luis Obispo (Camp SLO), Los Padres National Forest, San Luis Obispo County Parks, and the City of San Luis Obispo.

Abstract: 
The Morro Bay Invasive Species Action Plan is a watershed-wide strategy to reduce the impact of invasive species. It encompasses all taxonomic categories of terrestrial, freshwater, and marine invasive species. To become invasive, these species must go through six different stages including transport, introduction, colonization, naturalization, spread and impact. The different management strategies presented in this plan were developed to address the problem at every stage of the invasion process. These management strategies are written as objectives. The objectives are somewhat fluid, meaning they are mutually exclusive and there is overlap between these categories. This plan is comprised of six objectives with 26 action items addressing: Coordination; Prevention; Early Detection: Rapid Response; Control & Management; Education and Outreach. This is meant to be a living document. To allow a mechanism for easy revisions and updates there will be no draft or final version. Rather, there will be different versions denoted by the date last revisited. The most curretn version of the plan will be available on a website in digital format at (www.centralcoastinvasives.com).

Abstract: 
The Morro Bay Watershed Fire Management Plan identifies several strategies for implementing a wildland fire and fuels management program that: - Reduces the likelihood of large, catastrophic fires - Reduces the adverse watershed impacts of disturbance-based wildfire suppression activities - Incorporates wildland fire and fuels management activities into Morro Bay Estuary Watershed restoration projects - Increases public awareness of the linkages between wildland fire and the health of the estuary - Provides for a healthy estuary ecosystem, functional watersheds and fire safe communities
