Apalachicola Riverkeeper’s slough restoration project is on schedule. The scientific team now has most of the necessary data to apply for federal and state permits to proceed with sediment and debris removal in Douglas Slough, Spiders Cut and East River. Once work is completed, current estimates are that flow will be doubled or tripled in these sloughs during low water levels, benefitting both the lower river floodplain and Blounts and East Bays. Project Manager Ken Jones recently provided a detailed update of the project to Apalachicola Riverkeeper’s Program Committee. Watch the video here.
