MARINE WAY SUBMERGED AQUATIC VEGETATION SURVEY
Delray Beach, FL
A Submerged Aquatic Vegetation Survey and wetland assessment was conducted to determine the permitting requirements and challenges for the relocation of the adjacent roadway, sidewalk, and docks along Marine Way. It required a coordinated and mapped dive along the eastern side of the seawall to find the presence and location of seagrasses, mangroves, and other environmentally sensitive vegetation. Based on the findings, recommendations were made for the location of the proposed docks, sidewalks, and roadway, as well as appropriate ways to expedite the permitting process through various agencies utilizing avoidance and mitigation techniques.
