Jabrad Borrow Pit

st. augustine, florida

Matthews Design Group (MDG) completed engineering and site design for the proposed Jabrad borrow pit, a property composed of two vacant parcels totaling 20 acres zoned OR. A 150-foot buffer of preserved trees separated the site — located south of CR 204 and west of U.S.1 — from the adjacent county road. Borrow pit design includes a rim ditch to recharge water back into the earth to ensure no negative groundwater effect to neighboring lands. In addition to permitting with state agencies, MDG obtained a special use permit from the St. Johns County Zoning Department.
