The Dauphin Island Sea Lab/Mobile Bay National Estuary Program (OWNER) is seeking qualification packages from marine contractors for phased, thin-layer placement of sediment to nourish the marsh spits in Fowl River.

The project extents span from Shrout Marsh Spit at Oxford Road, down-river to the spit opposite of Bellingrath Gardens at Bebee Point Drive. The work will place thin-layer sediment (6’ - 8” thick) in phased applications over the five (5) priority marsh spits identified in the Fowl River Watershed Management Plan.
