- Franks Tract Restoration Demonstration Project
- Create four islands in the flooded portion of Franks Tract SRA, where existing water depths are typically about 8 feet at mean tide level. Two of the islands would be built to elevations low enough that they will provide substrate for habitat establishment. The remaining two islands would have a mix of habitat and recreational uses, and will be higher in the central portion of the fill area to provide wave protection and an area for passive recreational uses. The islands would be created either as stand-alone features or by extension of existing remnant levees using available offsite dredged materials. The minimum demonstration project would restore approximately 48 acres of flooded subtidal habitat to tidal perennial and park habitats.
