AMAFCA is poised to begin the next phase of construction of the Valle de Oro Drainage Facility. The Valle de Oro Swale Project involves creation of one 600-foot wide and one 200-foot-wide drainage swales which will connect to the Valle de Oro Outlet Structure and a weir/crossing structure at the Barr Interior Drain. Construction on the Swale Project is anticipated to begin in Fall 2021 and is projected to be completed in Summer 2022. Please visit the Valle de Oro Wildlife Refuge website for updates on major changes to the Valle de Oro Wildlife Refuge access for visitors.
