Project Update

Aquatic Plants of Florida, and subcontractor Cardno Ltd., will begin construction on the Perdido Key Dune Restoration the week of March 5. The contractor will begin planting from the west, at the Florida state line, and work east. The project is required to be substantially complete by Monday, April 30.

The success of the project was highly dependent on the support of Perdido Key Gulf-front property owners. Ninety percent of Perdido Key Gulf-front property owners provided the necessary access to allow the project to move forward.

Escambia County has received restoration funding through the Natural Resource Damage Assessment as a result of the impact sustained to the Perdido Key dune system during the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill in 2010 and the subsequent cleanup operations.

The Perdido Key Dune Restoration project will restore six miles of dune habitat from the Florida-Alabama state line, east to the edge of Gulf Islands National Seashore property. The project will restore approximately 20 acres of degraded dune habitat on Perdido Key by planting and establishing salt-tolerant vegetation, which will enhance coastal resiliency.
