The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Jacksonville District, announces a two-part Technical Workshop for the Lake Okeechobee System Operating Manual (LOSOM) Project Delivery Team (PDT), to be held Monday, April 12 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and Friday, April 16 from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

The presentations and discussions will be different on each day of the workshop.

The LOSOM PDT Technical Workshop will be an opportunity for the LOSOM PDT, sub teams, stakeholders and the public to provide in-depth input on the development of Balanced Lake Schedules, over the course of two different days. In general, the first day will include in-depth input on Iteration 1 model results and performance tradeoffs, and the second day will be focused on input about development of balanced plans. A detailed agenda will be provided closer to the workshop dates.

The Project Delivery Team (PDT) members include only the federal officials and elected officers of state, local or tribal governments or their designated employees with authority to act on their behalf acting in their official capacities.

Members of the public (PUBLIC) are welcome to attend the government agency PDT meeting and provide comment during the designated Public Comment periods.
