Abstract: This paper contains a report of 26 Corps of Engineer spoil sites, along with remarks regarding the condition or restoration potential of the major sites ranging from Tampa Bay to Venice, Florida. Within the study area there are 14 sites in Manatee County and 12 sites in Sarasota County that were studied. It was determined that Sarasota Bay does not present numerous spoil island restoration opportunities compared to other coastlines of Florida. Reasons include the natural deep water area in Sarasota Bay, and the availability of mainland or barrier island spoil sites where Little Sarasota and Blackburn bays are so narrow. Several recommendations emerged from this project that may improve subsequent restoration projects.
