Richard Bayou Sediment Reduction Project

The Richard Bayou Sediment Reduction Project is located in the East Bay Watershed approximately 20 miles southeast of Panama City in Bay County, Florida (N30.061320 W85.489617). This project is funded in part by a Section 319 Nonpoint Source Management Program implementation grant from the U.S Environmental Protection Agency through an agreement/contract with the Nonpoint Source Management Section of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and the intent is to reduce sediment impacts to Richard Bayou.
