Coral Pointe Canal restoration work to begin May 26
The city of Cape Coral will begin restoration work along the Coral Pointe Canal on Tuesday, May 26.
The work will involve mobilizing equipment to the project site, the removal of invasive species (Australian pines), bank reshaping, berm building, hydroseeding and mangrove planting. An agreement between the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and the City allows up to 120 days for remediation work to be completed. In July, the City received a warning letter from the FDEP after protected mangroves were removed during a canal maintenance project.
