Lake Seminole Restoration Dredging
A county contractor has started a dredge operation that will remove about 900,000 cubic yards of organic sediment from Lake Seminole in Pinellas County, Florida, as part of the Lake Seminole Restoration Project.
Lake Seminole is the county’s second largest freshwater lake, a critical part of the watershed and a major amenity for recreation and nature enjoyment. Accumulated sediment has contributed to persistent water quality problems and habitat degradation. The three-year dredging operation will remove about 54 tons of phosphorus and 311 tons of nitrogen, reducing nitrogen loads by 56 percent in Long Bayou and Boca Ciega Bay.
