Abstract

William Kenneth Fehring is a former Tampa Port Authority environmental director whose early work with the harbor deepening projects and permitting for fresh and saltwater bodies directly involved him in management of the bay. He became one of the earliest Agency on Bay Management representatives after leaving the port authority. Fehring extensively discusses the history of Tampa's dredging projects and their effects, such as habitat loss and the creation of dredge spoil islands, as well as expanding upon the part played by USF and governmental agencies. By the end of his career he bore witness to the beginning of committees such as the Agency on Bay Management, the Southwest Florida Water Management District, and the SWIM Program.
