The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Jacksonville District invites partners, stakeholders, and the public to join us for an Integrated Delivery Schedule 101 and Stakeholder Listening Session on Thursday, August 5, 2021 at 9 a.m.

“The purpose of this engagement is provide partners, stakeholders and the public with an opportunity to learn more about the Integrated Delivery Schedule or ‘IDS’ and to host a listening session,” said Eva Velez, Strategic Program Manager for the Ecosystem Branch. “The IDS reflects the sequencing strategy for planning, design, and construction for the South Florida Ecosystem Restoration Program. This is a living document that synchs up federal and state program and project priorities to give us a clear path forward.”

The Integrated Delivery Schedule (IDS) is a forward-looking snapshot of upcoming design and construction schedules and programmatic costs at a “top” line level for the South Florida Ecosystem Restoration (SFER) Program. It includes Modified Water Deliveries to Everglades National Park, Critical Projects, Kissimmee River Restoration, non-Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan (CERP) Central and Southern Flood (C&SF), and CERP projects. The Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan (CERP) focuses on the “getting the water right.” CERP—the largest aquatic ecosystem restoration effort in the nation, spanning over 18,000 square miles—is designed to improve the health of more than 2.4 million acres.

The IDS synchronizes program and project priorities with the State of Florida and achieves the CERP restoration objectives at the earliest practicable time, consistent with annual funding updates and the interdependencies between project components.

Please join us for the Integrated Delivery Schedule 101 and Stakeholder Listening Session on Thursday, August 5, 2021 at 9 a.m.

  • IDS 101 – The Basics (Presenter:  Eva Velez)
  • System Operation Manuals – The Basics (Presenter:  Dan Crawford)
