The MBNEP is facilitating restoration efforts in the D’Olive Watershed funded through a grant from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation – AL Gulf Environmental Benefit Fund 2013. Restoration efforts are targeted at eroding stream systems that are transporting sediments to downstream water resources, causing declines in water quality and habitat in the Mobile Bay ecosystem. Restoration efforts include stream restoration and stormwater related best management practices in the D’Olive Creek, Tiawassee Creek and Joe’s Branch watersheds, draining a total area of over 7,700 acres of Spanish Fort, Daphne, and unincorporated Baldwin County.

The Mobile Bay National Estuary Program (MBNEP) works collaboratively with landowners, local governments, agencies, and contractors to implement effective watershed restoration projects in Coastal Alabama.
