USACE Meeting on Big Fishweir Creek Restoration Project

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Jacksonville District, will host a community meeting today in Jacksonville, Fla, regarding the Big Fishweir Creek Aquatic Ecosystem Restoration Project.

The meeting takes place at the Willowbranch Branch Library, 2875 Park St., Jacksonville.

A poster session/meet and greet is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. followed by a formal presentation at 6:30 p.m. The public will have an opportunity for comment after the presentation, reported the Corps.

USACE also added that the purpose of the meeting is to provide the community with an overview, update, and next steps for the Big Fishweir Creek restoration project. The Project Partnership Agreement which signifies the start of design and permitting was executed on June 7, 2018 between the Corps and local sponsor, City of Jacksonville.

The overall goal of the scheme is to restore healthy aquatic habitat in the creek by providing ecological benefits including: the removal of sediment, restoration of habitat for manatee and other native species, removal of exotic vegetation, restoration of submerged and emergent aquatic vegetation, and restoration of wetlands.

Big Fishweir Creek is an urban tributary of the St. Johns River, located approximately 4 miles south of downtown Jacksonville. The creek enters the St. Johns River just north of the Ortega River.
