The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Jacksonville District announces a Project Delivery Team (PDT) Meeting for the Biscayne Bay and Southeastern Everglades Ecosystem Restoration (BBSEER) Project Study on Wednesday, October 6, 2021, from 9 to 11 a.m.
“The purpose of this Project Delivery Team Meeting is to summarize feedback on measures and alternative concepts received at the September PDT. The team will also share the initial detailed alternative plans intended to store freshwater for use during the dry season, methods of conveyance and redistribution, and sources of freshwater developed without modeling. Initial plans are intended to restore timing and distribution of freshwater to natural areas such as Biscayne Bay and the Southeastern Everglades,” said April Patterson, BBSEER Senior Project Manager. “We appreciate the continued engagement of the Project Delivery Team, stakeholders and members of the public during the planning phase of this complex project. Your participation during our extended meetings and workshops, your input, local knowledge, expertise and shared data are absolutely critical to the development and success of this project.”
