Crane Creek M-1 Canal Flow Restoration Project

Jones Edmunds supports the St. Johns River Water Management District with H&H modeling, preliminary design, final design, permitting, and construction of flow restoration improvements for the Crane Creek M-1 Canal Flow Restoration Project. The project is based on the recommendations of the 2016 Indian River Lagoon (IRL) Stormwater Capture and Treatment Project Development and Feasibility Study, where Jones Edmunds was the lead consultant to the District and IRL Council. The project will achieve water quality goals that contribute to ecological restoration in the IRL while providing water supply benefits to the St. Johns River.

Design and permitting are complete, including an operable control weir in the M-1 Canal, an East pump station for base flow pumping out of the M-1 canal approximately 3 miles west of the weir, conveyance systems including a 24-inch diameter stormwater force main crossing of I-95 to a stormwater treatment area, a West pump station for pumping treated water, and a second west 24-inch force main that ultimately discharges to a District-owned site along US Hwy 192 that connects to the St. Johns River.

The project is currently in construction, and the expected completion date is March 2025.

Managing Director Brett Cunningham remarks, “This is the type of project that makes you proud to be a part of this profession.” Senior Consultant Rich Koller also declares, “It has been great working with the District on this important project through design and now during construction.”


We extend our heartfelt appreciation to our dedicated team for their unwavering commitment and unparalleled service on the Crane Creek M-1 Canal Flow Restoration Project.
