This highly sensitive environmental project for the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) required Bergeron Land Development to construct numerous levees, berms and canals. Special concern was taken to protect animals living there including bears, panthers, snakes and turtles from any unforeseen hazards or harm. Turbidity fences and silt fences were utilized to successfully maintain their safety as well as perform de-watering and blasting operations in accordance with the project specifications and permit restrictions.

After successfully completing the Stormwater Treatment Area 2 and WC2A Hydropattern Restoration Works for South Florida Water Management District, Bergeron was featured in Construction Today Magazine and the projects were awarded the 2003 OCEA, Award of Merit, from the American Society of Civil Engineers for best design, quality, importance and completion an award that is rarely given. Bergeron is experienced in accommodating the special demands of working in unique wetlands and waterfront areas.
