Loxahatchee River Watershed Restoration Project Performance Measures
Evaluation of Base Conditions and Alternative Plans
The Loxahatchee River Watershed Restoration Project Deliver Team (PDT) utilized the Lower East Coast subRegional Model – North Palm to simulate hydrologic conditions over a 41-year period in southern Martin County and northern Palm Beach County. The modeling results are presented in a series of Performance Measure Graphics (PMGs) that show comparisons of water flows, water levels and related indicators.
The PMGs are organized into 11 categories, then separated by specific basins, canals, water storage facilities and water control structures. As users drill down into the categories, a variety of results (wet, dry or average conditions) for graphic types (stage hydrographs, stage duration curves, water shortage triggers, etc.) will appear. The final level in each category will be a selection of model runs that have been grouped for comparison:
- Performance Measurement Set #1 – 2014 (current) base condition and 2070FWO (future without project) base condition
- Performance Measurement Set #2 – 2070FWO, Alternatives 2, 5 and 10
- Performance Measurement Set #3 – 2070FWO, Alternatives 2, 12 and 13
All three performance measure sets are available. Some PMGs were not available for the initial posting but will be incorporated as soon as practical. Updates will be noticed here, and the PDT will be notified.
Finally, please remember that this modeling is not intended to, and does not, provide absolute results of specific future conditions. The results are provided so the PDT and other interested parties can make relative comparisons on the performance of the alternatives.
