Adjacent to the Hill Canyon Wastewater Treatment Plant (HCTP) is a thriving 7-acre wetlands feature that is home to local bird and wildlife. The Wetlands Creation Project was completed in March 2004 as part of mitigation requirements for a City sewer rehabilitation project upstream of HCTP.

Approximately one million gallons of reclaimed water flows through the wetlands creating a stunning habitat for birds, fish, reptiles, and a wide variety of plant species. For local birds, the wetlands are considered an oasis providing food, shelter, and a much needed rest stop during migration.  Many species of birds nest and raise their young in this peaceful environment.

The American Public Works Association honored the City and the Wetlands Creation Project with its National Environmental Project of the Year award in 2005

This wetlands creation feature next to HCTP is yet another example of our City's commitment to the environment and sustainability.
