Abstract:
The objectives of this study are:

1. To develop flow calculation techniques for bridges and culverts under US-41, between Carnestown and County Road 92. First year focusing on the section between Faka-Union Canal and County Road 92, expanding east to State Road 29 in the second year of the study.

2. To provide support to on-going CERP and DOI studies populating hydrologic databases that can also be used by other federal and state agencies, universities, and local institutions conducting studies in the area.

Purpose:
The coastal environment of south Florida has shown signs of ecological deterioration that is attributed to changes in freshwater inflows due to urban development, water management practices, and corresponding increases of salinity and nutrient content in estuarine waters. With plans to improve water levels and historic flow-ways in the Picayune Strand (formerly known as Southern Golden Gate Estates) area north of Tamiami Trail to more natural conditions, changes are expected in the amount, timing, and distribution of freshwater discharge through bridges and culverts under US-41, altering current conditions in the wetlands and estuaries to the south. Hydrologic information throughout the Ten Thousand Islands and adjacent ecosystems is critical to the development of restoration strategies and for the evaluation of restoration results. With the implementation of the CERP projects "Picayune Strand Hydrologic Restoration project" (PSRP) and "Tamiami Trail (US-41) Culvert project", there is a need to determine current hydrologic conditions in areas south of US-41. These areas will be greatly impacted by these projects currently underway. There is little hydrologic information throughout the wetlands and estuaries within the study area that could be used in the development and calibration of the hydrologic models. There is a critical need for information on freshwater flows across the Trail, ground-water information (including Specific Conductance/salinity) within the marshes south of the Trail, flows at or near the mouth of tributaries, water level, and salinity data throughout the area. The results of this study will provide information that currently does not exist on freshwater flows and salinity trends, effects of weather systems on flow patterns, and on how PSRP and Tamiami Trail Culverts restoration projects affect freshwater inflows and water quality of the estuarine ecosystem within the Ten Thousand Islands area.

Process_Description:
Work planned for FY 2006 includes:

1. Installation of a maximum total of four flow stations at bridges of Tamiami Trail between Faka-Union canal and County Road 92 for the collection of stage, velocity, discharge, salinity (or Specific Conductance), and temperature data. 2. Begin discharge measurements with an Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP) or comparable instrument at these and all other bridges (or culverts) along the same section of Tamiami Trail. 3. Start developing velocity calibration ratings for all instrumented sites to calculate discharge records. 4. Begin correlation analyses to determine relations between instrumented sites and all other non-instrumented sites, in order to calculate individual flows across all bridges and culverts within the study area.

Process_Date: 2007
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Contruction, instrumentation, and data collection of seven flow stations at bridges east and west of the Faka-Union Canal for the collection of stage, velocity, discharge, salinity (or Specific Conductance), and temperature data, at Tamiami Trail section from Country Road 92 to State Road 29. All flow stations have been leveled to NAVD 88.
Process_Date: 2007
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Discharge measurements at all bridges and culverts along the Tamiami Trail section from County Road 92 to State Road 29 for instrument calibratons and correlation analyses started.
Process_Date: 2007
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
1. Collection monitoring at 7 bridges of Tamiami Trail between State Road 29 (Carnestown) and County Road 92 for the collection of stage, velocity, discharge, salinity (or Specific Conductance), and temperature time-series (15 minute) data.

2. Continue discharge measurements with an Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP) or comparable instrument at these and all other bridges (or culverts) along the same section of Tamiami Trail.

3. Continue developing velocity calibration ratings for all instrumented sites to calculate discharge records. 2007 drought conditions prevented measurements for expected ranges of discharge.

4. Continue correlation analyses to determine relations between instrumented sites and all other non-instrumented sites, in order to calculate individual flows across all bridges and culverts within the study area. Additional measurements will be required in FY-2008 in an attempt to capture higher discharge conditions as compared to those obtained in 2007.
