Jones Edmunds is supporting the St. Johns River Water Management District (SJRWMD) with preliminary design, final design, and permitting of flow restoration improvements associated with Crane Creek and M-1 Canal Flow Restoration Project. The project is based on the recommendations of the 2016 Indian River Lagoon (IRL) Stormwater Capture and Treatment Project Development and Feasibility Study, where Jones Edmunds was the lead consultant to the District and IRL Council. The project is intended to achieve water quality goals contributing to ecological restoration in the IRL while providing water supply benefits to the St. Johns River.
The project involves design and permitting of an operable control structure, base flow pumping station, conveyance systems including a crossing of I-95, and a stormwater treatment area (STA) that ultimately discharges to the St. Johns River. The project includes stakeholder and regulator meetings, field investigations, hydraulic and hydrologic (H&H) modeling, property acquisition support, funding support, preliminary engineering, final design, construction cost opinions, and related support to the District for readying the project for procurement and construction contracting.
