Default Navarre Formation (SR-27) Update #3

-----------<snip>------------
First -- A YYyuuugeeee (FU) to the admins for blocking third party pictures... {simmer} ... when you let a decent browser position them into the text (almost like we were approaching 2004 or 2005 in tech) -- SMH -- It would be very helpful.

So here we are late 2017 after the BP oil spill in late 2009-early 2010. The work is finally getting underway to get some Santa Rosa Nearshore reefs in place for the community to enjoy and "recreate" around. Since I can't put the photos or documents in line to make a cognate description and image I guess I'll just add a summary:

- moneys here
- design is blessed
- first reef should splash early April 2018, last O/A Oct 2018.
- Design is for three reef clusters with a total of 29 reef patches, ~ 556 +/- reefs spread between the patches
- 22 Very large modules capable of attracting and holding AJ and other structure luv'n fish EXAMPLE of a super reef ONLY final selection of the REEFING contractor will occur in 1 QTR CY2018.


- We're looking for interest in supporting the verification and assessment of the reefs once splashed, coordinates will be public
- Also looking for community support to make more "non-motorized'" walk over/wash downs to the West to access the 2 miles of reefs along Navarre Beach proper.

Thanks for all the support from many members here over the last 7 years to make this a reality. I'll release more as we get the bids out / back and a selection is made.

Best Regards,
Stresslss

There are some areas labeled as hardbottom on the image you posted. I assume those areas exist today. Can you share more information about that? Do you have any numbers?

The hard bottom is nothing more then the 'valleys' in the sand. There are no hard bottom outcroppings or limestone ledges, we lost the ability to put reefs in there due to extraordinary B.S. from FL DEP and FWC oversight. Is there less sand from those areas to the bedrock - YES, are any rocks visible in any of the valleys surveyed, NO. but to keep this moving - it's easier to maneuver around the areas of interest to the DEP and FWC then to fight the bureaucrats.

Here'a a better bathymetry of those areas, note the other structures I/We found while mapping it. We dropped scuba and cameras at various places along the deeper cuts but no live bottom which would have been great in conjunction with the reef patches. What may happen in a storm event is the rock does get exposed and them the live bottom ecosystem will take hold.. but that's a fairly large "if".

Best,
Stressless
