Healy Avenue Marsh Restoration
Norton Inlet, Jamaica Bay, Far Rockaway, NY
Excavate 10,000 C.Y. from a filled former wetland. Screen construction debris from the sand and dispose of off site. Establish an upland dune community with the excavated, screened clean sand. This was part of a value-engineering proposal. A low and high salt marsh community was re-established in the tidal zone.
