Ten Mile Creek Water Preserve Area Project

The Ten Mile Creek Water Preserve Area (WPA) project is an above-ground reservoir with a treatment area, located in St. Lucie County near Fort Pierce, and is intended to improve the health of the St. Lucie Estuary.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is currently working closely with the State of Florida to execute an agreement that will deauthorize the Ten Mile Creek project and turn it over to the State of Florida.

While the Ten Mile Creek project has been awaiting congressional de-authorization, the Corps worked with the local sponsor, the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD), to enable the SFWMD to perform temporary operations at the project.  These operations have enabled the SFWMD to store up to 1 foot of water within the reservoir and provide operational and ecological benefits.
