The marsh scored a big win by being selected as the recipient site for beneficially-used dredge material from a nearby dock expansion project at the Barbours Cut Terminal deepwater port.
In turn, the community also reaped the benefit of the dock expansion, which was slated to provide additional jobs and revenue to the region.

We served as the dredging engineer of record and our team successfully designed and completed the project within an accelerated schedule of 20 months, transporting 475,000 cubic yards of dredged material nearly 10 miles from Barbours Cut to San Jacinto Marsh.
The dredge fill helped restore 150 acres of intertidal marsh habitat, to mimic the conditions of the battlefield in 1836.
Cleveland, Metroparks’ 22,000 acres of open space form one of the most interconnected, extensive urban park systems in the U. Encircling the city, these parks, trails, zoo, and recreational facilities are collectively known as Cleveland’s "Emerald Necklace." In 2012, a new jewel was added to this necklace: Acacia Reservation, a 155-acre property that had been a golf course, for the past 100 years.
Euclid Creek, a tributary to Lake Erie, flows through the site.
