Hydrology Restoration Project
The Refuge is engaged in a multi-year effort to restore natural hydrology across the Lower Suwannee Refuge into the Gulf. Several years ago, grants to restore the land and water became available after the Gulf oil spill for high impact projects in the affected region. The Refuge joined with other organizations in a successful hydrology restoration proposal. More details about it are available in Restoration of the Refuge's Natural Hydrology.
The photos show various ditches next to roads. The roads form barriers, keeping the fresh water from flowing naturally across the land and into the Gulf and River.
