Date Issued:

Summary:
The Big Slough watershed encompasses 195 square miles in Sarasota, Manatee and DeSoto counties and drains into the Myakka River on the west coast of Florida. In order to evaluate the magnitude of flooding associated with future development, sub-basin and conveyance characteristics were determined and compiled as an input data set for the US EPA Stormwater Management Model (SWMM). Both the RUNOFF and EXTRAN simulation blocks were used to develop preliminary flood profiles for comparison with observed data. This interim project report describes the development of sub-basin characteristics, preliminary model calibration and verification results for two separate storm events. In addition, peak runoff rates were evaluated for several storms of varying duration and antecedent moisture conditions to define a design storm for additional studies.
