$13-Million Elder's Island Project Helps Stem Jamaica Bay Salt Marsh Loss

"Working with our partners, this project is the first step towards the long and complex journey of addressing the salt marsh loss within Jamaica Bay. During the first phase, more than $13 million of construction activity to restore the environment at this site will provide 70 acres of wetlands for our harbor estuary," said Col. Richard J. Polo, Jr., New York district engineer. "This will be the first large scale marsh island restored, building on the Big Egg pilot, under the District's Jamaica Bay Marsh Islands Ecosystem Restoration Program." for more info, click here
