Gainesville Regional Airport Permit Compliance

Gainesville Regional Airport
Gainesville, Alachua County, Florida

In the early 1990s, the Gainesville Regional Airport (GRA) permitted several improvements through the St. Johns River Water Management District (SJRWMD). Mitigation for the permitted impacts was never completed due to unforeseen objections by the Federal Aviation Authority (FAA). Over the 15 years that followed, several attempts were made to complete the required mitigation, but none were successful. In late 2008, EC&D was contracted by GRA to locate a suitable mitigation property and work with SJRWMD to bring all outstanding permits into compliance.

EC&D located a property in southeast Alachua County and negotiated a mitigation and management plan with SJRWMD and the County. The site is now part of a larger conservation area and is managed by the Alachua County Forever program.
