The Jacksonville District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) and the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) will host a will host a series of four virtual workshops in February as part of the C&SF Flood Resiliency Study. Each workshop is a standalone session that will focus on development of preliminary alternatives for one of the planning reaches discussed at the planning charrettes held on January 11 and 12. Each session will also include a recap of the problems, opportunities, objectives, and constraints collaboratively developed on the first day of the planning charrette. The management measures and conceptual ideas developed for each planning reach on day 2 of the charrettes held in January will provide the starting point for preliminary alternative development.

The Jacksonville District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) along with the non-Federal Sponsor, the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) are preparing a National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) document for a proposed flood risk management study initiated under the authority of Section 216 of the Flood Control Act of 1970 within the Central and Southern Florida (C&SF) Project.
The purpose of the study is to identify and evaluate alternatives for the Central and Southern Florida Project to provide continued and improved flood risk management to reduce the most immediate risk due to changing conditions, including climate change, sea level change, land development, and population growth in the lower east coast of Florida in the tri-county area of Palm Beach, Broward, and Miami-Dade counties.
USACE invites the participation of Federal and state agencies, Native American Tribes, local agencies, and interested stakeholders in providing comments and identifying any issues or concerns.
The C&SF Project is a large, multipurpose water resources project initially authorized by the Flood Control Act of 1948 for the purposes of flood protection for urban and agricultural areas, water supply for agricultural, municipal, industrial, and ecosystem uses and to prevent saltwater intrusion risks to the coastal water supply.
Additional project information along with the dates, times, locations, and instructions for joining future meetings will be available on the project webpage at www.saj.usace.army.mil/CSFFRS/.
