Picayune Strand Restoration Project

Description: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) is restoring the hydrology and habitat within the Picayune Strand Restoration Project (PSRP), located in Collier County, Florida. Ecological, hydrological, and water quality data will be collected to provide monitoring of the project’s effects and to support adaptive monitoring and adaptive management while the Southwest Protection Feature (SWPF) levee is being constructed.  The period of monitoring services is expected to start in 2022 and last up to 5 years. Earthology was awarded the environmental monitoring component of the PSRP.  This monitoring will include surface water quality, flow, stage, groundwater level, sediment, fish tissue, vegetation transects, and periphyton. This monitoring will provide hydrologic, ecological, and water quality data in compliance with the PSRP Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan Regulation Act permit (No. 0288313-014), and to support adaptive monitoring and adaptive management of the project during and after construction of the SWPF.
