Engineering Services for Project Greenshores
 
Greenshores is an award-winning habitat restoration effort that will create emergent and submerged saltmarsh vegetation along approximately 1 mile of urban shoreline on the northwest shore of Pensacola Bay, FL. The primary objective was to create a highly visible, habitat-rich, educational shoreline restoration project to serve as a model for other disturbed areas of shoreline. EOE provided design, permitting, and construction management services for the offshore submerged berm breakwaters and sand saltmarshes. The breakwaters were fabricated from recycled concrete rubble, salvaged from buildings damaged by Hurricane Ivan, and the saltmarsh utilized recycled sediment dredged from the Escambia River.
