Jones Swamp Floodplain Restoration

Project is the restoration of 10+ acres of historic wetlands within the Jones Creek floodplain.  The area was cleared and filled by the U.S. Navy in the 1950’s to provide a clearway beyond the southern end of the airfield runway as a safety feature.  Project will restore wetlands and wildlife habitat by excavating fill material associated with the former clearway.  Project will include initial geotechnical survey of fill material.  Findings shall be evaluated for material suitability for clean fill material.  Project will also evaluate fill material prior to removal for potential contamination.
