Jonathan Davis Wetland Restoration

PROJECT LOCATION:

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

The project will reduce the marsh loss rate and maintain and improve fish and wildlife habitat quality. Bankline restoration will rebuild some of the most eroded areas to an elevation suitable for natural revegetation. Stabilization of the area will reduce erosion and moderate impacts associated with hydrologic extremes, thus allowing more gradual stabilization of more saline characterized marshes. Reducing canal's cross-sectional area will lower rates of water exchange, erosion and salt water intrusion.

PROJECT STATUS: (Project Status Last Updated: 11-Jul-2012 )

Construction has begun to repair vandalism to the concrete walls. Work is anticipated to be completed by October 2012.

FUND STATUS:

The current project estimate is $28,896,380 , which includes $20,768,891 for construction first costs, and $816,885 and $7,310,604 for 20 years of monitoring and operations and maintenance, respectively.
