General Note

  • The Cascades was where two Florida delegates, one traveling from St. Augustine and the other from Pensacola, met and camped. Thereafter, this site was determined to be the mid-point between Florida's first two cities, and was designated the state capital.
  • Discarded coal tar from a nearby city operated gas plant contaminated the soil. Over 70,000 tons of impacted soil is contracted to be excavated from the former manufactured gas plant and surrounding area while three inches of sediment from within the entire Cascades Creek channel will be removed for transport to an EPA-approved landfill.
  • Note the concrete box culvert at the far left. 55 concrete box culverts spanning 18 feet across and 9 feet high (Each box weighing 43,700 pounds or approximately 22 tons) will be placed as part of the stormwater management portion of the project to protect against flooding.
