Project Description

The purpose of this project is to complete the planning, modeling/flow regime analysis, engineering, and design required to restore hydrology and improve water quality to 70 acres of estuarine tidal marsh and tidal creeks at the Weeks Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve (NERR) “dead end canals” site in Baldwin County, Alabama. Completion of these activities will provide the NOAA Restoration Center with a full understanding of the construction alternatives at this site, complete with environmental impact and benefits metrics. This information will provide the NOAA Restoration Center with the necessary information to seek Category 2 funds for implementation.
