Nueces Bay Causeway Marsh Restoration - Phase 2

Summary

Coastal Bend Bays & Estuaries Program will implement a second phase of marsh restoration. Marsh restoration is to consist of raising bottom elevation to support low-marsh communities, designing channels for adequate circulation through the raised areas, and planting appropriate vegetation. The marsh complex and causeway will be protected by an earthen or stone berm. The Phase 2 budget of $655,000 will allow for the restoration of another 20+ acres of crucial marsh habitat.
