Waterford Percolation Ponds Restoration

The Waterford restoration is approximately 13 acres between the municipal percolation ponds and the Tuolumne River. The Tuolumne River Conservancy partnered with the City of Waterford to plant the floodplain in native trees.

Volunteers planted trees along the river at Waterford Percolation Ponds and later 350 cuttings from native trees were planted with a D-8 Crawler Tractor. The floodplain is now a riparian forest. Adjacent to the planted trees is space for planting oak trees (acorns). The California Poppies and mugwort are also re-establishing themselves.
