NWFWMD, through Florida Forever, provided a grant of $199,000 to CBA to design, engineer and build treatment for storm water entering Santa Rosa Sound from Liza Jackson Park. CBA brought together interested groups such as the City of FWB, the University of Florida Master Gardeners and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Storm water entering the bay from this park now is filtered through a meandering tidal creek with a coastal flood plain containing native plants and animals. Sediment and particulates settle out and the native fauna and flora remove nutrients. This project also provides a wonderful educational opportunity for the millions of tourists and residents who visit the park annually.
