Agenda for the Feeder Canal Basin Water Quality Program Workshop

To complement the federal Western Everglades Restoration Project (WERP), the South Florida Water Management District (District) is developing a Feeder Canal Basin Water Quality Program (Program) to identify regional and private projects in the West and North Feeder Canal Subbasins. This Program is intended to improve water quality exiting the Feeder Canal Basin and implement water storage, flow, and attenuation projects as necessary to mitigate environmentally harmful high water level events.  

The purpose of this workshop is to discuss project ideas, knowledge of the watershed, and data gathering opportunities with stakeholders. One of the projects that will be investigated is the feasibility of the previously proposed South Boundary Canal extension, and additional ideas by stakeholders are welcome.  

One or more members of the Governing Board of the South Florida Water Management District may attend this meeting. No Governing Board action will be taken.
