Today,approximately 800 tons of recycled concrete material was placed offshore northeast Florida 12 miles East of Ponte Vedra Beach. Project contractor Salonen Marine had the fully loaded barge onsite and anchored by 9:30 am. In a little under three hours time the entire reef material contents were successfully placed on the ocean floor. The reef, to be called the Fred Morrow Reef, lies in 73 feet of water.
