  • Description:
    "This report documents completion of the Green Cay Gut Headcut Stabilization construction project as part of HW's final project closeout requirements under the NOAA CRCP Order No. DG-133C-12-BA-0056/C-0013. The following objectives were successfully met by this project: 1. Cessation of active headcut migration and a reduction of sediment loads to Chenay Bay, which is impaired for turbidity; 2. Implementation of a priority watershed restoration project identified in the NOAA-funded 2011 Watershed Management Plan for the St. Croix East End Marine Park; 3. Development of a list of native plants suitable for gut restoration projects in the USVI and support of the island's only native plant nursery; 4. Creation of an interagency partnership to fund implementation and provide support during project permitting and construction; 5. Completion of proper permitting at the Territorial and Federal Level; 6. Capacity building for the St. Croix Environment Association to manage permitting, construction bidding, construction oversight, and grant administration for a watershed restoration project; 7. Demonstration of a headcut restoration technique using a combination of rock step pool and vegetation that has not been previously used in the VI; and 8. Preparation of engineering design plans for downstream Phase II work"--Page 2.
