Tarpon Point Marina

Tarpon Point Marina is a 175 wet-slip docking project which included dredging of sovereign submerged lands and relocation of an existing fuel dock.  Our scope of services included a benthic assessment of the proposed site, data collection for hydrographic analysis, South Florida Water Management District and U.S Army Corps of Engineers permitting, as well as coordination with the United States Fish and Wildlife Service and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.  Because the project is located in an area which was designated critical habitat for the smalltooth sawfish during the permitting process, it was necessary to quickly redesign the project based on coordination with the National Marine Fisheries Service.  This was accomplished with only minor delays in permitting.  Permitting of the project is complete.
