PROJECT STATUS REPORT as of 21-Oct-2019

GIWW to Clovelly Hydrologic Restoration

PROJECT LOCATION:

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

The project will protect the 60,000 acres of fresh and low-salinity wetlands through the restoration of historical hydrological conditions. This will promote greater freshwater retention and utilization to prevent rapid salinity increases, and also promote water exchange through sheet flow as opposed to an expanding network of tidal channels. The project will restore the area to the hydrologic conditions that prevailed historically. The project includes canal plugs, rock weirs, fixed crest weirs with boat bays, one variable crest weir, and the rebuilding of low overflow banks that have eroded away.

PROJECT STATUS: (Project Status Last Updated: 6-Dec-2002 )

The project was divided into two contracts in order to expedite implementation. The first contract to install most of the weir structures, began May 1, 1997 and completed November 30, 1997, at a cost of $646,691. The second contract to install bank protection, one weir and one plug, began January 1, 2000 and completed October 31, 2000, at a cost of $3,400,000. All project construction is complete. O&M Plan signed September 16, 2002.

FUND STATUS:

The current project estimate is $12,784,520 , which includes $6,444,428 for construction first costs, and $1,236,624 and $5,103,468 for 20 years of monitoring and operations and maintenance, respectively.
