Eau Gallie & Banana River Muck Mapping

Eau Gallie & Banana River Muck Mapping

Many areas adjacent to the Banana and Eau Gallie Rivers have been drained and developed over time resulting in suspended sediment and detritus flowing into the Indian River Lagoon, where it settles on the river bottom, decomposes, and forms an organic silty layer of muck.  Over time, the accumulation of silt creates large pockets of muck which deplete oxygen levels in the river and can adversely affect populations of fish and seagrass habitat. The accumulation of muck (a silty, organic layer of fine sediment) on the river bottom has occurred naturally from stormwater runoff but has been accelerated by human activities such as canal construction and agriculture.
