Zero Excavation Inflow & Infiltration Restoration At the Naval Air Station in Pensacola after a High Water Event
Ever since the U.S. purchased Florida from Spain in 1821, the site where the Naval Air Station (NAS) in Pensacola currently stands has provided a base for military operations. In 1826, construction began on the Pensacola Navy Yard and it eventually became one of the “best-equipped naval stations” in the U.S. During this period, the Navy Yard was used for docking and repairing the warships of that period.
