Diversified Professional Services (DPS), the general contractor selected by the Southwest Florida Water Management District, has resumed work on the Wildflower Preserve Restoration Project!
Governor DeSantis’ “Safer at Home” executive order allows construction projects to continue during this month’s limited activities period. DPS is working with a small crew and maintaining all appropriate safety measures as work proceeds.
Currently, DPS is working on clearing vegetation and excavating soil to create expanded estuarine wetlands in the southwestern quadrant of the project. Excavated material is being used to create the new wetland observation mound called for in the project plans.
The aerial photo provides a view looking north of excavation work in progress.
We’ll be providing periodic updates on this exciting project in the weeks ahead!
