Project Description

Bayou Chico has experienced severe environmental degradation due to historic impacts, including industrial and domestic wastewater discharges, shipyard-related pollution and long-term untreated stormwater runoff. Legacy pollutants remain in the Bayou. This project will provide funds to Escambia County for planning, design, and acquisition of all federal and state environmental compliance and permits for the dredging and removal of sediments enriched with nutrients and hydrocarbons from the northern area of Bayou Chico.
