Summary of Offering

MBNEP is seeking qualified engineers, land surveyors, geoscience, or other similar professionals through this competitive, qualification-based selection process to develop engineering and design documents and secure permits to stabilize an unnamed tributary (locally known as Spring Branch) to Fish River in the community of Marlow and up to five additional stream segments in the Lower Fish River Watershed (LFRW) yet to be determined. The project will employ inquiry, monitoring, engineering analyses, and design necessary to obtain permits and oversee the construction of projects to stem deterioration and loss of natural function threatening downstream intertidal fisheries habitat.

The MBNEP has secured funding from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation Gulf Environmental Benefit Fund (NFWF) to undertake:

  1. Engineering and design and construction-related activities for up to 1,650 linear feet of stabilized and restored stream on an unnamed tributary to Fish River (locally known as Spring Branch) in the community of Marlow;
  2. Engineering and design for up to five other priority stream segments in the LFRW; and
  3. Field assessments and baseline monitoring activities to inform site selection of additional LFRW stream segments and future long-term monitoring of all implemented projects.
