Environmental and Marine Consultants supporting Florida since 1976
Orange River Landing is a multifamily residential development which includes a 48 wet-slip docking facility with direct access to the Caloosahatchee River. Services provided by DexBender during the permitting process included a protected species survey as well as a benthic survey of the docking facility site. Additional services consisted of South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD), U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (COE), and Lee County permitting including coordination with the National Marine Fisheries Service, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, and the United States Fish and Wildlife Service. In order to meet water quality requirements, a planted flushing shelf was proposed within the marina basin which was designed to increase tidal flushing and also provide additional treatment of stormwater discharge. The project received SFWMD and COE permits in 2009. Lee County authorization for the project is pending.
