“The purpose of this virtual public engagement is provide partners, stakeholders and the public with an opportunity to learn more about the Working Draft of the 2021 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 strategy for the continued, historic momentum of 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 foundation projects like the Kissimmee River Restoration and the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan (CERP) projects. The plan focuses on the “getting the water right.” CERP—the largest aquatic ecosystem restoration effort in the nation, spanning more than 18,000 square miles—is designed to improve the health of more than 2.4 million acres.
Please save the date for the Release of Final 2021 IDS Update on October 28, 2021.
