The project consists of construction and deployment of at least 3,500 tons of secondary use concrete material. These reef materials consist mainly of large concrete culverts, junction boxes and similar large clean concrete structures. These materials are to be deployed in seven (7) patch reefs within the South County permitted reef area in the Atlantic Ocean offshore. To foster a thriving environment below sea, the Coastal Engineering Department works cooperatively with a wide range of public and private organizations. The Martin County Artificial Reef Program represents such a partnership. The Artificial Reef Program brings together various government organizations, educational institutions, sportfishing and diving enthusiasts, and interested citizens to create artificial reef environments that provide habitats for fish and other marine organisms.
