Optimization of Freshwater Inflows to the Caloosahatchee Estuary

Download pdf | Full Screen View

Summary:
The purpose of this project is to provide a methodology for implementing storage-release systems and best management practices within the Caloosahatchee Watershed to modify mean monthly frequency distributions of freshwater inflows to the Caloosahatchee Estuary. The methodology is sufficiently generalized to be applied to other watersheds, such as the St. Lucie on the Florida east coast. The goal is to provide protection to the estuarine ecosystem by attempting to at least partially restore pre-development runoff conditions to the Estuary. An additional objective is to satisfy irrigation demand requirements in the watershed from retained storm drainage.
