Sedimentation

America’s water is polluted by more than one billion tons of sediment annually! It is one of the most significant problems facing waterways throughout the St. Johns Watershed. Particulate matter, like soil, that washes off construction sites leads to sedimentation, or the accumulation of particles in waterways. A tremendous amount of soil leaving construction sites is burying aquatic life, disrupting the food chain, and affecting citizens’ ability to boat and recreate.
