Project Investigators: Donald L. DeAngelis, Frank J. Mazzotti

Project Start Date: 2001 End Date: 2005


Summary

The objective of this project is to provide technical assistance to the Army Corps of Engineers and South Florida Water Management District for the development and evaluation of ecosystem alternatives for the Southwest Florida Feasibility Study.

The Southwest Florida Feasibility Study (SWFFS) was recommended in the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan and was authorized in Water Resources Development Act of 1996. The objectives of the Feasibility Study are to develop an ecologically sound comprehensive regional plan for water resources in southwest Florida.

The Study began in August 2001 and the final feasibility report is due in November 2005.

The Feasibility Study, co-managed by the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) and South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD), requires technical expertise outside of each agency, which can be acquired by contracting with private consultants, federal agencies, or state agencies.

The objective of this project is to provide technical assistance to the USACE and SFWMD for the development and evaluation of ecosystem alternatives for the SWFFS. Don DeAngelis of the United States Geological Survey (USGS), in cooperation with the University of Florida (UF), Fort Lauderdale Research and Education Center, will provide this technical assistance by utilizing university staff under the direction of UF professor Frank Mazzotti.
