Surface-Water Flow Through the Seminole Tribal Lands within the Greater Everglades
The objective of this project is to evaluate approaches for quantifying freshwater flows to and from Native American lands and to provide various hydrologic data to support other Federal and State hydrologic investigations. The implementation and development of strategically locating streamflow and water-quality gaging sites will provide information for determining future surface-water flow requirements. Subsequent studies based on accurate flow calibrations generated by these sites will be used for computation of nutrient loadings in the canal system. Providing continuous-flow data at selected impact points for internal basins will complement the eastern flow canal discharge network and allow for surface-water releases that are more accurately timed. The accounting of all significant hydrologic inflows and ouflows to the Everglades ecosystem of the south Florida mainland is a key element of the South Florida Ecosystem Program.
