SPRING CREEK RESTORATION MEETING SUMMARY
Jim Beever from the SW Florida Regional Planning Council was hired by Bonita Springs to study the cleanup of Spring Creek. Our Imperial Harbor waterways drain into Spring Creek and have become clogged with invasive plants and restrict the natural flow of water.
Jim was at the Harbor Clubhouse on Saturday, June 20th at 9 a.m. to meet with ALL Imperial Harbor residents and hear our concerns and respond to questions.
His aim is restore the hydrology (water movement), water quality, habitat and navigation to the waters included in the area of the project. He reviewed his project plan and answered questions. A summary of responses are below:
The Judd and Weir waterways abut Royal CT., Duchess & Duke Lanes and the City map shows "no ownership" of these waters. They will be included in the study if they prove to be an important component of the water problem. Study will include weed control, irrigational use by property owners and navigation to the creek which is currently block by a dam. It was mentioned that the dam was originally put in to keep fish from leaving the pond. (My thought, how could access to the pond be made from I.H. without crossing private property and/or, if navigable from other waters, will boaters be able to stop and fish from the banks of abutting I.H. homes or have a picnic? Just thinking.) He plans to visit I.H. again when snowbirds return.
Ponds behind Princess, Squire and Peer Lanes are privately owned but within the jurisdiction of this project if they are found to be being mismanaged. Site visits have been made and individuals wanting a specific site meeting can contact Jim Beever at jbeever@swfrpc or (239)338-2550 ext. 224.
