  • USACE and SFWMD announce four virtual workshops in February for development of C&SF Flood Resiliency Study alternatives

    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. Series of Four Virtual Workshops for Development of Alternatives for the C&SF Flood Resiliency Study in February Session 1 - Reach A: Broward and Hillsboro Basins: Wednesday, February 15, 2023, 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. Session 2 – Reach B: Little River and Nearby Basins: Wednesday, February 15, 2023, 1 p.m. – 4 p.m. Session 3 - Reach C: Miami River and Nearby Basins: Thursday, February 16, 2023, 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. Session 4 – Reach D: South Miami Basins: Friday, February 17, 2023, 1 p.m. – 4 p.m.

  • USACE announces BBSEER Project Delivery Team Meeting on June 30

    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 Thursday, June 30, 2022, from 1 to 3 p.m. “The purpose of this Project Delivery Team Meeting is to review model assumptions for the existing condition and future without project baselines prior to completing development and modeling in the Regional Simulation Model. The model assumptions were developed by the Interagency Modeling Center in collaboration with the BBSEER plan formulation and model subteams. The existing condition and future without project baselines will be used to measure the performance of the alternative plans. BBSEER alternative plans are intended to restore freshwater flows to terrestrial and coastal wetlands in Biscayne Bay and the Southeastern Everglades,” said April Patterson, BBSEER Senior Project Manager. “We appreciate the continued engagement of the interagency Project Delivery Team 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.”
