Envirocon performed shoreline excavation, rehabilitation, and restoration services on 5 acres of contiguous intertidal wetlands at the environmentally sensitive site. Environmental habitat aspects of the project included protection of fish species, waterfowl, and other wildlife, along with coordination with a Native American Tribe during seasonal fishing activities. The project was located in a high-profile area with extreme community and habitat sensitivities, and a diverse group of unaligned stakeholders with varying objectives. We positively interacted with the surrounding community on a daily basis.
- Excavated 75,000 cubic yards of contaminated shoreline soils and placed backfill while performing work on both the north and south shoreline areas simultaneously
- Demolished and removed existing concrete structures and foundations
- Revegetated with marsh and riparian plantings and placed large woody debris within the intertidal area for additional habitat
- Installed goose exclusion fencing over the marsh planting zone to protect the area from wildlife and steel piles for fish net attachment points for the Native American Tribe’s fishing use
- World Organization of Dredging (WODA) Environmental Excellence Award in 2016
Envirocon managed challenging communications and coordination throughout the project with fourteen different stakeholders, including various state and local agencies; NOAA/National Marine Fisheries; EPA; U.S. Fish and Wildlife; USACE; and others.
