Flood Abatement Project Alligator Creek & Sampson River

2019 Florida American Public Works Association (APWA) Award Winner; Disaster Recovery Projects

Following Hurricane Irma in 2017, the Bradford County, Florida Alligator Creek and Sampson River waterways were obstructed with debris and uprooted and/or fallen trees/tree limbs. Southern Disaster Recovery successfully completed not only the original fixed price contract of 14.7 miles of waterway at $1.6 million, but also additional contract amendments, for a total project amount exceeding $2.5 million. The original project began in September 2018 and was to last no more than 220 days. With the added tributaries, the project completion date was extended to April 2019.

The scope of work mandated that specific criteria be adhered to in order to protect the natural wildlife habitats along the creek and river as well as the properties that bordered the affected areas. Southern Disaster Recovery successfully fulfilled the stringent requirements of the contract with minimal to no impact on the environment.
