Presidio Quartermaster Reach Marsh
The Presidio Quartermaster Reach Marsh Restoration project is the final stage of the Tennessee Hollow Watershed restoration, which began in the late 1990s. The project scope included removing a buried, 72-inch pipe, daylighting two creeks feeding fresh water to the marshlands, and constructing a 72-foot-wide box culvert under Mason Street. The new culvert connects the marshlands to the South and North sides of Mason Street and ultimately restores the natural flow of water from the Tennessee Hollow Watershed to the Bay. The project included habitat restoration; new walking paths; sidewalks, paving, and new utilities in Mason Street; and the self-performed installation of a new, 100-foot-long pedestrian bridge.
