Peyton Slough is all new, courtesy of a Martinez chemical plant.

Local chemical plant Rhodia Inc. has completed its restoration of the slough -- a one-time toxic hot spot -- stretching more than a mile long, with curved banks and more than a half-mile of associated tributaries expected to attract shore birds to the wetlands now covering more than 200 acres. It will drain upstream wetlands while allowing potential tidal flow of salt water into the ecosystem.

The cleanup is a culmination of efforts of more than two dozen local, state and federal agencies and tens of millions of dollars from property owner Rhodia Inc. Officials marked the completion Tuesday.

"I think we're demonstrating our commitment to taking care of the problems here at the site professionally and conscientiously as we can," said Rhodia President Jim Harton.
