The updated Integrated Delivery Schedule provides the sequencing of federally cost-shared Everglades restoration projects. It will provide the sequencing strategy for planning, designing, and constructing federal projects cost-shared with local sponsors as part of the Central and Southern Florida (C&SF) Projects, based on ecosystem needs, benefits, costs and available funding.
The IDS is a living document that is updated as needed to reflect progress and/or program changes, and does not require an agency action or a decision document. It is a tool that provides guidance to decision-makers for scheduling, staffing and budgeting. The IDS synchronizes program and project priorities with the State of Florida and is needed to request required funding to plan and build South Florida Ecosystem Restoration Program projects.
The South Florida Ecosystem Restoration Task Force Working Group sponsored a series of public workshops in 2015 to facilitate public participation in the IDS update. The task force provided feedback from these workshops to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the South Florida Water Management District.
