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.
