Bass River Wetland Mitigation Project


Location: Bass River, New Jersey
Value: $ 1,100,000
Panther was awarded a contract to perform wetland mitigation work at the Bass River Wetlands Mitigation Site. The client selected Panther based on our professional experience at multiple other complex wetland sites, and our ability to satisfy owners, regulatory agencies and local authorities while adhering to permit requirements. The scope of work for the sensitive project was to establish and maintain approximately 85 acres of wetland, upland and other aquatic habitat through the creation, restoration, enhancement and preservation of estuarine wetlands. Panther installed various soil erosion and sediment control devices (silt fence, turbidity barriers, silt bags, construction entrances) as well as performing ongoing survey verification throughout the entire operation. Construction elements consisted of site clearing, removal of materials from various habitats and the construction of temporary wood plank roads. Using long-reach excavators working on crane mats, approximately 6,300 cubic yards of soil and muck materials were removed from various locations on the island and drainage channels were excavated at other locations. Approximately one-half of this material was re-used on the island to construct / create new wetland areas and animal habitats. The balance of the material was loaded onto a barge, transported across the Bass River, off-loaded on the mainland and either shipped offsite to the Bellmawr Waterfront Development facility in Bellmawr, N.J. for disposal or stockpiled onsite for later use by the client. Restoration of the work areas included the planting of low marsh and high marsh plant species, goose protection, various shrubs and grass seed mixtures. In addition, Panther installed a 177-foot long ADA compliant fishing / observation pier and a parking lot to accommodate visitors to the pier. The project was performed on schedule and well under budget. By working diligently and cooperatively with all local stakeholders Panther enjoys positive relations with local community leaders and authorities.
