Meeting on Eau Gallie River Dredging

The St. Johns River Water Management District will host a meeting on June 11 in Melbourne to provide the public with an update on the status of the Eau Gallie River dredging project.

The 6 p.m. meeting will be held at Melbourne City Hall, 900 E. Strawbridge Ave., Melbourne.

The District, in coordination with the city of Melbourne, plans to remove at least 625,000 cubic yards (about 41,000 dump truck loads) of muck soils from the main stem of the 3.9-mile-long Eau Gallie River, as well as the southern branch of the river known as Elbow Creek. Dredging is expected to improve navigation and water quality.

Construction of a dredge material management area, a location to deposit and dewater dredged materials, will begin later this year and is expected to be completed by spring 2016. Dredging is scheduled to begin immediately after construction of the containment area and will be completed by the end of 2017.

Officials with the District, the city of Melbourne and Taylor Engineering will present information on dredging plans and project scheduling. Additional project partners are Brevard County, Florida Inland Navigation District and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection.
