Enhancing Water Quality and Dredged Material for the Port of Harlingen (Phase I)

Summary

This project is the first phase of a larger effort to ultimately construct a two-bank wetland system at the Port of Harlingen. The larger effort would expand this initial project to both banks of the turning basin at the Port, which would lead to even greater water quality and habitat improvements. Due to the time required to obtain permits and construct a wetland, we are proposing to conduct preliminary assessments, develop a conceptual design for the site, and begin the permitting process. This necessary first phase includes an ecological site assessment and inventory; a wetland site suitability evaluation; hardscape and landscape design; and permit(s) inquisition.
