Restoring the Baird Tract

Construction began in June 2010 to restore the 11,000 acre Baird Tract in Sumter County. The thousands of acres of wetlands located on the tract provide surface water storage, groundwater recharge and flood water attenuation helping to benefit the regional water quality. Restoring Baird Tract will help to further evaluate and correct many of the man-made alterations which have contributed significantly to wetland drainage, and have otherwise altered the natural flow patterns.

Phases I, II, and III of the project are complete. Phase IV of the restoration starts in May 2012 and includes additional ditch block and culvert installations.
