Document Description
Proposal to remove 0.86 acres of marsh vegetation from Andree Clark Bird Refuge and restore 0.86 acres of wetland habitat at the Bird Refuge, and remove silt and vegetation from a grouted sandstone culvert along Old Coast Highway and from a concrete culvert entering the Bird Refuge from the north, for a total of 0.07 acres from the culverts. Maintenance activities would occur over a five-year period to keep the affected locations free of marsh vegetation. The restoration consists of 1:1 replacement of brackish marsh wetland habitat in various locations around the Bird Refuge. The purpose of the project is to restore water flow and conveyance in the lake and culverts to reduce mosquito production and flooding, improve water quality and limit eutrophiciation and resulting odors. The project would also protect the diversity of habitats at the Bird Refuge.
