Description:
Abstract:
The report describes the history of roads through the Lower Glades of Everglades National Park and their influence on salinity intrusion. The tables contain data on flows through culverts beneath the main park road.
Purpose:
The main road in Everglades National Park (ENP) connects Flamingo with the Park's entrance and continues onto the coastal ridge of Miami-Dade County. The current alignment of the road, an extension of State Road 9336, formerly known as State Road 27, was built in 1956 when a portion of what was then known as Ingraham Highway was replaced with a more northward section. The road has been the subject of some controversy. Some scientists have claimed that the roadbed is a barrier to natural flow into Florida Bay, while others have blocked culverts to hold fresh water back in the wetlands east of the road and north of Florida Bay. The South Florida Natural Resources Center conducted a study to access the current condition of the culverts and to determine the patterns of water flow in the area adjacent to the road. Information has been gathered on the road's history, the historical water levels and flow patterns. Monitoring sites have been installed to record water level, salinity, and flow, which are being measured during times when water is present. The USGS conducted investigations in the southern Everglades to assess the extent of saline-water intrusion by means of airborne electromagnetic geophysical measurements. The data in the tables are part of the report which condenses the information gathered as of 2002.

Process_Description:
Staff gauges have been installed in and near seven culverts along the main Park road and at two locations on the Pay-hay-okee overlook access road. The recorders have been installed in upstream/downstream pairs. Along with the discontinuous staff gauges (88NGVD), two stations (SR-1 and SR-2) measuring continuous stage have been installed between culverts 57 and 58. SR1 and SR2 have been operational since November 1997. Fifteen culverts have been selected for routine flow measurements along the main Park road along with two culverts on the Pay-hay-okee overlook access road and one on the road leading to Mahogany Hammock. Point velocity measurements were taken at each observation culvert using a Marsh McBirney Portable Water Current Meter beginning in 1996. These measurements are aiding in developing a representation of the flow patterns between Royal Palm and Mzarek Pond.
