In 1985, President Ronald Reagan was still in the White House, the NBA named Michael Jordan as the “Rookie of the Year,” and a cadre of famous artists recorded the song “We Are The World” to raise money for famine relief in Africa. In central Florida, the St. Johns River Water Management District and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) were laying out plans to embark on one of the largest flood protection and wetlands restoration projects in the world.
The Upper St. Johns River Basin Project was a monumental undertaking. The goal: protect Brevard and Indian River counties from flooding by restoring more than 160,000 acres of marshes at the headwaters of the St. Johns River.
