Description:

For well over a decade, the Firm has been retained by the Florida Park Service to address varying levels of Park improvements or resolution of erosion issues fronting ocean, gulf, riverine or estuarine environments.  Projects have included beach restoration to protect an endangered and unique Maritime Forest; groins to protect a historic fort; restoration of endangered species habitat; jetty tightening to reduce sediment losses from a Park shorefront to a federal navigation project, the strategic facilitation of federal navigation project maintenance sand on State Lands and others similar activities.  Project locations have included Ft. Clinch State Park; Amelia Island State Park; Talbot Island State Park; Perdido Key State Park; John U. Lloyd State Park.  Work products have included studies, design documents, construction management, permitting and liaison with other governmental agencies including the U.S. Navy, USACOE, F.I.N.D., and various affected counties and municipalities.  Complicating any associated regulatory requirements for improvements is the fact that the water abutting most State Parks have an Aquatic Preserve/Outstanding Florida Waters designation.
