WAGNER CREEK/SEYBOLD CANAL DREDGING, ENVIRONMENTAL CLEAN-UP AND REMEDIATION PROJECT
Maloof represented environmental engineering and construction companies in winning a $30 million contract to clean up one of South Florida’s most polluted waterways. He established the credibility of the project team and demonstrated its ability to perform the work against strong competition from national and multi-national firms.
The project is funded from three sources: grants from the Florida Inland Navigation District and Florida Department of Environmental protection; and a State Revolving Fund loan to cover the balance of funds needed.
The client will remove toxic dioxins, fecal matter and dumped items in Wagner Creek and Seybold Canal in Miami. The waterway was so contaminated due to dumping of dangerous chemicals that its fish were deemed too toxic to eat.
