Broward County Ocean Outfall Cover

August 2012 Aug2012 BrowardOceanOutfallCover_Page_1UESI provided open-ocean construction services to install articulated concrete mats over approximately 1,504 linear feet of 54-inch ocean outfall pipe located in the Atlantic Ocean. Prior to the installation of ACB mats, over 500 boulders from 1,500 to 5,000 lbs had to be relocated. The mats were placed and the rocks were then relocated on top of the ACB mats. To comply with the permit, UESI transplanted coral onto the mats in compliance with the County’s Coral Relocation, Monitoring and Compensatory Mitigation Plan.
