The lowland grasslands adjacent to the Marsh constitute an important transition area between the Marsh and uplands and have high value for marsh related wildlife, particularly when the wetlands are flooded and during periods of high hunting pressure in the Marsh.
Because the Suisun Marsh consists of a large expanse of relatively flat terrain, it is attractive for utility routes (pipelines, wires, and cables) and transportation facilities (roads and highways, railroads, and air transport).
The Marsh should be considered part of the BCDC segment of the California coastal zone and, to the extent possible under applicable Federal law (in particular the Federal Water Pollution Act of 1972).
