Fact Sheets

  • JACKSONVILLE HARBOR | Deepening Study

    Jacksonville Harbor consists of 27 river miles starting at the mouth of the St. Johns River where it empties into the Atlantic Ocean. The harbor is an increasingly attractive port to call due to its location relative to the Panama Canal; as well as its access to extensive intermodal connections including rail, water, and highway facilities. In addition, more than 50 million consumers are within an eight-hour truck drive of Jacksonville Harbor marine terminals.
  • TEN MILE CREEK | Water Preserve Area

    The Ten Mile Creek Water Preserve Area (WPA) is an above-ground reservoir with a stormwater area (STA), located in St. Lucie County near Fort Pierce, and is intended to improve the health of the St. Lucie Estuary.
  • Miami Harbor - Phase III Dredging Project

    The Port of Miami is situated in the Biscayne Bay, which is home to many protected, threatened and endangered species including the Florida manatee, sea turtle species and bottlenose dolphins, in addition to numerous important recreational and commercial fish species. Terrestrial and marine habitats surrounding the Port include beaches, mangroves, seagrass beds and hardbottom and reef communities. As such, the Miami Harbor Deepening Project has been closely coordinated with resource agencies, stakeholders and members of our surrounding community during the planning process. The US Army Corps of Engineers and the Port of Miami are committed to working with all parties to ensure environmental resources are protected, and to monitoring prior, during and after the dredging takes place.
