Chevron GIWW Vegetative Planting Project
The Chevron GIWW Vegetative Planting Project was performed in 2013 near High Island, Texas. SWS provided vegetative planting services for the installation of 2,750, 4” containerized pots of Spartina alterniflora. The plants were installed on the backside of the breakwaters that serve as shoreline protection along the GIWW. SWS utilized vegetative stock from its licensed nursery for the propagation of the containerized pots. A 5 man crew was utilized during the installation process. The project was successfully completed in 2 days.
