These slides describe how the Georgia Ports Authority is preserving the wetlands on and around their sites.

9 ACRES of diverse wetlands (at the Garden City Terminal) are protected by the GPA. By directing runoff into wetlands, GPA removes multiple types of pollutants while providing flood control and habitat protection.

16 UNITS Silt suspension units are online at the Garden City Terminal, substantially reducing the need for maintenance dredging at the berths. The silt suspension units produce a low-velocity flow to keep water moving and reduce siltation that would need to be dredged.

212,000 Turtle hatchlings have been released into the ocean thanks to the Caretta Research Project, a study sponsored by GPA. GPA is dedicated to protecting right whales and loggerhead turtles, and to protecting and preserving tidal marshes.

1,000 ACRES Runoff from 1,000 acres is treated by GPA’s storm water system, which captures sediment and pollutants. The storm water master plan includes best management practices, reducing sediment, total suspended solids, oil and nutrients.
