St. Lucie Completes Hurricane Irma Repairs to All Mosquito Control Areas

Post Date:02/06/2018 8:52 AM

St. Lucie County’s Mosquito Control District recently completed repairs and reopened all of its properties on both North and South Hutchinson Island. Hurricane Irma caused more than $4 million in damages to dikes, culverts and piers. Preserve areas on South Hutchinson Island reopened in December, while crews wrapped up repairs to areas on North Hutchinson Island Feb. 1.

TSI Disaster Recovery performed work on 21 mosquito impoundment areas, replacing 38,450 linear feet of rocks that protect the earthen dikes. Crews also added 83,500 linear feet of coquina rock, substantially strengthening these dikes ability to withstand future storms.

St. Lucie County’s Mosquito Control impoundment areas are located in coastal wetlands and marshes and are used to control mosquitoes by flooding breeding areas, while at the same time providing public access to recreational amenities such as fishing, hiking and bird watching.

St. Lucie County is working through the process to apply for funding from the Federal Emergency Management Agency to help cover the costs of these repairs.
