Our C-44 project works to improve water flow and quality of marine life in the surrounding areas. We strive to create canals, berms and structures that will be beneficial to the Estuary.

One of our main projects going on right now is with the state, we are working with the South Florida Water Management District in construction of the C-43 Reservoir/STA storm water treatment area and dam. Here, our duty consists of clearing, grubbing, demolition of 492 acres of existing citrus grove and natural landscape as well as the construction of 7 preloaded mounds 50 feet above the existing elevation.
Other elements of work include dewatering using perimeter ditch, riprap placement with filter fabric, providing and installing shell rock, grassing, culvert installation and construction of an office compound.
Relevancy: Heavy Equipment, Material Supply, Sod Installation, Ditch Bank Moving, Culvert Placement, Stump Grinding and Heavy Vegetation Control.
One of our more massive projects is underway in Martin County, the C-44 Reservoir is a multi-phase water management project dedicated to protecting the St. Lucie Estuary by filtering and cleaning water before it flows through the connecting canal and then into the St. Lucie River.
Working closely with the South Florida Water Management District the C-44 has proven to be our largest project yet, with nearly 200 pieces of equipment working to move nearly 17 million cubic yards of earth.
The completion for this project will not only clean and filter water in the Estuary but will also help protect the various Marine Environments and species. Site work for the C-44 Reservoir/STA Storm Water Treatment Area consists of the construction of 32 miles of STA levees/berms; 30 miles of distribution, collection, and drainage canals as well as 6,300 acres of clearing and STA cell interior grading. Utilization of 60’+ long reach excavators, LPG dozers, 9000 series tractors with pans, and drones, all equipped with GPS, allow for safe, precise production and as-built surveys. Through the implementation of creative sequencing for men and machines, over 2 and a half miles of Milestone 1 levee was completed on schedule. We finished by removing/remediating, tracking, and relocating 500,000 cubic yards of impacted soil from 26 separate locations 6 months ahead of the initial contract schedule, while meeting all other milestone activities.
