Fortescue Salt Marsh Resiliency Project

  • Project Type: Ecosystem Restoration & Resilience
  • Watershed Name: Lower Delaware
  • Client Type: Government Agencies
  • Status: Complete

Fortescue is one of three salt marsh resiliency projects funded by a National Fish and Wildlife Foundation Hurricane Sandy grant. Serious subsidence and erosion diminished ecosystem services on site, so dredged material was reused to enhance the marsh and stabilize the shoreline.
