Jenkins Sound Resiliency Plan
The EMLab is working with The Wetlands Institute (TWI) and New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) to develop a multi-phase resiliency plan to help preserve and protect valuable marsh habitats in the greater Jenkins Sound area. The initial phase of this study involves data collection, cultural assessment, and simulation modeling for the bay area. Initial implementation plans include sediment placement and nature-based infrastructure improvements for the Scotch Bonnet Island area.
Partners for this phase of work also include the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Philadelphia District.
