Picayune Strand Restoration Project (Collier County, Fla.)
Publisher: United States. Army. Corps of Engineers. Jacksonville District.
Abstract: The Picayune Strand Restoration Project (PSRP) encompasses an area of sensitive environmental land located in southwestern Collier County, Florida. It is located southwest of the Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuge, north of Ten Thousand Islands National Wildlife Refuge, east of the South Belle Meade State Conservation and Recreation Lands (CARL) project, west of the Fakahatchee Strand State Preserve, and northeast of Collier Seminole State Park. The South Belle Meade CARL project known as “Belle Meade” and the Southern Golden Gate Estates (SGGE) CARL project were combined to create the Picayune Strand State Forest. The central location of the PSRP among these nature preserves and wildlife areas reflects its importance to ecosystem connectivity of the region. For more information on the SGGE history and area, please see Section 1 of the 2004 PSRP Final Project Implementation Report (PIR) and Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) (U.S. Army Corps of Engineers [Corps] 2004). The PSRP consists of removing the infrastructure of a 55,247 acre subdivision and restoring its pre-development hydrology and ecology (Figure 1-1). The PRSP was authorized by Section 1001(15) of the Water Resources Development Act (WRDA) of 2007.
