Assessment of Removal of Creosote-Treated Pilings and Structures from San Francisco Bay (Project)
The remnants of old creosote-treated piers and dilapidated maritime facilities are common sights along intertidal and subtidal shorelines. Removal of these structures has been proposed as a possible restoration focus for San Francisco Bay. Removal of dilapidated pilings could mitigate the adverse effects of other environmental threats and advance long-term goals for management and restoration of subtidal habitats in San Francisco Bay.
