The Upper Peninsula Watershed Drainage Improvements Dale Mabry/Henderson Trunkline Design-Build Project Team recently became aware of sediment plumes in the Culbreath Bayou inlets that have occurred before, during and after rainfall events in South Tampa. Our team has conducted an inspection of the silt and turbidity barriers on the site and confirmed that the Project’s erosion barriers are in place. The vacant lot located at 4935 West Melrose North is the source of the sediment plumes due to a private property failing seawall and the City is in the process of proceeding to enforce a notice of violation or correction.

 

The Project Team will continue to monitor the Estrella Street Outfall as the project progresses.

 

If you have any questions, please call the Project Hotline at (813) 235-0364.
