The Drum Island Marsh Restoration Project will be recognized by the American Council of Engineering Companies of South Carolina on February 4, 2020, with the awarding of a 2020 Engineering Excellence Award. On behalf of the South Carolina Ports Authority, ATM was part of a multi-disciplinary team that restored 22 acres of marsh on the southern tip of nearby Drum Island in Charleston Harbor. Its central location in Charleston Harbor ensures that its function as an intertidal marsh will provide an ecosystem that will help maintain water quality and provide a habitat for juvenile fish and other local marine and avian species. Additionally, the tidal marsh will help to absorb and attenuate the destructive surge and wave forces that accompany large storms. ATM provided peer review services that were critical to the project’s success.
