In May 2015, the Corps issued a modification to permit (SWT-2008-657) that included minimal revisions to permitted mitigation activities on the southwest and south portions of the site.  The work authorized by this permit has been initiated, including the completion of Phase I.  The Campbell Creek relocation and other additional work is ongoing, in accordance with permit (SWT-2008-657).
