Daily Water Level Percentiles by Month

For monitoring water levels during the EDEN period of record in WCA3A, WCA3B, and Everglades National Park

EDEN Station Name: SITE_71
Location: Latitude 25°53'5", Longitude -80°33'24"
Subbasin Location: WCA3B
Average ground elevation (ft. NAVD88): 5.06
Vertical conversion at gage (ft.) used by EDEN (NGVD29 to NAVD88): -1.57

EDEN data are used to monitor water levels and to compare current water levels with water levels that occurred during the EDEN period of record (2000 to present). The figure here shows recent daily median water levels at a given gage against water-level percentiles that are computed for each month (daily water levels that were not exceeded for a given percentage of the time) using water-level gage data from the period of record.

The below figure shows the same daily median water levels from a given gage, but instead of comparing to gage water levels from the EDEN period of record, it compares the given gage to modeled water level values from the No Action 2022 (NA22f) hydrologic scenario (model period: 1965-2016). NA22f was developed from the South Florida Water Management District's Regional Simulation Model (RSM) and uses the ALTQ (Alternative Q) water operations schedule. Because NA22f is a modeled water surface, gage values were not available for comparison. The percentiles shown below are calculated from the model cell in which the gage is located.
