It was not until 1965 that a state law was passed to regulate the unrestricted filling of the San Francisco Bay. By then, 92 percent of the bay's wetlands had already been destroyed. The law ushered in a new era of debate over the limits of private-property rights and the nature of public interest in protecting bay resources in an undeveloped condition. After initial US Supreme Court decisions affirming the public's right to restrict development in wetlands, recent decisions equivocate on the topic, raising questions about the future direction of federal wetland regulation, as well as about the future of a large-scale program of wetland restoration currently underway in San Francisco Bay.
