Recent Funding: (FY08) FDEP, USGS, (FY07) FDEP, USGS


The objective of this study is to quantify freshwater flows into the tidal reach of the Caloosahatchee River, west of Franklin Locks.

Cooperating agency FDEP

Monitoring stations established thru this project are designed as part of a larger network needed for the Caloosahatchee River and tributaries that should remain in place long-term (~10 years). Data from monitoring stations included in this project will be evaluated during the third year of data collection in order to assess viability and need for changes. If all stations were to be discontinued at the end of the third year of data collection (FY-2010), the last year (2011) will be devoted to finalizing records for the previous years and for the removal of all structures and instrumentation.
