Okaloosa County Reef Balls

City of Valparaiso Project off Destin, Florida. THIS PROJECT FUNDED IN PART BY DEP

In December of 1994, the city obtained a Department of Environmental Resource Protection (DEP) grant to build 240 Pallet Balls (tm)and deploy them offshore. Community charterboat captains and local dive shops pulled together and added additional Bay Balls (tm)and video monitorings to the project. The reef has been a success with divers reporting an abundance of fish and other interesting marine life while fishermen report large catches of snapper. Although the final deployment reports have not been filed yet, some of the Reef Balls can be found at Loran 13737.9 and 47059.1. THIS REEF SURVIVED A CATEGORY 3 HURRICANE!
