The length of the pier was dicated by SFWMD and USACOE so as to get the boats past the sea grass. Diito as regards the design and fiberglass grating (lets the sunshine reach the sea grass).

 

On Pine Island, many of the piers extend into the aquatic preserves. We are almost surrounded by aquatic preserves. Not a big deal.

 

This project is very environmentally friendly. The negative reports are all false rumors.
