West Calcasieu Beneficial Use Planting Project
The West Calcasieu Beneficial Use Planting Project was performed in 2013 on a recently created planting platform. SWS provided vegetative planting services in conjunction with the beneficial placement of dredged material. Approximately 20,000 bare root plugs of Spartina alterniflora were installed on 5 foot intervals across the site. SWS utilized vegetative stock from its licensed nursery to transplant the required vegetation as per project specifications. A crew of 10 men was utilized during the installation process. The project was completed in 4 days.
