Bolsa Chica Wetlands Tidal Inlet Historic Opened on August 24, 2006

History was made in 2006 when for the first time in over 100 years the Bolsa Chica wetlands in Huntington Beach were again tied to the Pacific Ocean as they once were, before the Bolsa hunting club was formed.

Though the momentous event was held early in the morning before the sun came up, close to 100 people (including surfers waiting to try out the new tidal conditions) attended the official bulldozing in which land was moved to allow the tide to carry water in from the ocean.

Funded through a special allotment from the Los Angeles and Long Beach port district, the event is somewhat an experiment with many unknown variables. Water in the wetlands direct access from the ocean and became an extremely salty brine in some areas, making them uninhabitable to the animals that use the wetlands as a stopover in the Pacific flyway.

Several news stations attended and covered the event, as several city officials that included Huntington Beach city administrator and Huntington Beach public information officer Laurie Payne.
