H2R Corp is providing geotechnical and construction inspection services for this new above-ground reservoir and STA project. This project is the primary component of the Indian River Lagoon-South project, which in turn is a key element of the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Program. The Indian River Lagoon is considered the most biologically diverse estuarine system in the continental United States and is home to more than 3,000 species of plants and animals. The C-44 Reservoir and Stormwater Treatment Area is the first component of the multi-billion dollar Indian River Lagoon-South project. The project is designed to capture 65 percent of the average annual stormwater runoff in the C 44 basin. The reservoir component will hold up to 50,600 acre-feet, or 16 billion gallons, of water at an average depth of 15 feet.
