The city of Sanibel recently announced that its contractor, Wright Construction Group, will begin construction of the Jordan Marsh Water Quality Treatment Park on Sept. 4.

The water quality treatment park will be located in the vicinity of Periwinkle Way and Casa Ybel Road on six acres of city-owned land, known as the Jordan Marsh Preserve, and 1.3 acres of land in the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation's Andrea Waitt Carlton Family Tract.

The primary goal of the project is to improve water quality in the Sanibel Slough to help meet Florida water quality standards. Secondary goals of the project are to enhance existing wildlife habitat on the site, provide recreational opportunities, and educate visitors on the various best management practices used to improve water quality.
