Southwest District Environmental Resource Permitting
Notice of Projects with Heightened Public Concern

The Department announces receipt of an application for permit from Hillsborough County Parks, Recreation and Conservation Department, File No. 29-0175559-002, to construct eight (8) breakwater/headland structures along the shore-parallel bulkhead line and extending north to the end of Apollo Beach Nature Park. The northern most breakwater structure will include a groin segment. The existing revetment will be lowered and rock from the revetment will be used in the construction of the breakwaters. The result will be two rows of storm protection consisting of the breakwater/headland structures and the upland lowered revetment. The upper part of the revetment area will be graded and planted with native dune grasses. The proposed project also includes dune restoration and planting to the north, a designated area for beach fill to the north and environmental enhancement and mitigation through the selective planting of wetland vegetation along the lower portion of the existing revetment and inclusion of seagrass mitigation planting to the restored bay area’s to the east (still on park property). This proposed project will be located in Apollo Beach Nature Park, Section 17, Township 31, Range 19 E, in Hillsborough County. The application can be viewed at: http://depedms.dep.state.fl.us:80/Oculus/servlet/shell?command=getEntity&[guid=23.114181.1]&[profile=Permitting_Authorization].
