Volusia County Restoration Project Continues

Work is set to reconvene on the ongoing salt marsh restoration project along John Anderson Drive in North Peninsula State Park in Volusia County. Mobilization to complete phase three of the project is expected to begin today. 

The work will take place along the west side of John Anderson Drive approximately three-quarters of a mile south of Highbridge Road. Contractors will restore another nine acres of historic salt marsh that was filled with spoil material during the dredging of the Intracoastal Waterway in the early 1900s.

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection’s North Peninsula State Park continues its partnership with the St. Johns River Water Management District and the Floridan Resource Conservation and Development Council on this project.

This work, funded by a grant from NOAA’s Southeast Aquatic Resources Partnership and St. Johns River Water Management District, is the continuation of the project’s third phase.

Restoring the marsh at North Peninsula State Park will create a healthy, productive saltmarsh habitat for a wide range of plants and animals,” said Florida Park Service Director Donald Forgione. “This restoration will create several scenic vistas, increasing opportunities for hiking, fishing and bird watching.”

During the project, heavy equipment will be brought in to clear existing vegetation and assist in the removal of spoil material.
