November 4, 2015 – NFWF Marsh Restoration by small dredge Amphibex video

The link below is to a YouTube video of the small dredge, Amphibex 400, owned by Bertucci Corp, working to restore marsh by dredging the accumulated fill in the adjacent dead end canal. It has created 14 acres of marsh-ready mudflat in 24 days.

Our mini-dredge took 220 hours to create one acre of marsh – the Amphibex in a comparable amount of hours created 9 acres.

This is the estimated status of the 15-acre marsh restoration target area on November 3, 2015. This is the result of 338 hours of pumping.
