Environmental and Marine Consultants supporting Florida since 1976
DexBender was contracted to permit the addition of two wet slips within an existing docking facility located adjacent to the Caloosahatchee River. The scope of services included U.S Army Corps of Engineers and Florida Department of Environmental Protection permitting along with coordination with Florida Fish and Wildlife Commision (FWC), U.S Fish and Wildlife Service, and National Marine Fisheries Service. Based on the linear feet of applicant owned shoreline at the existing facility, the addition of the two slips did not meet the requirements of the Lee County Manatee Protection Plan. In order to make the project permitable, DexBender coordinated with Lee County and the FWC in order to complete the first ever transfer of slip credits from an offsite donor parcel.
