Summary:
The report documents the results of hydrologic investigations conducted by the National Park Service, evaluating the impacts of 1984 through 1986 L-31W canal drawdown operations on the water resources of the northern Taylor Slough Basin of Everglades National Park. Drawdown impacts on the hydrologic conditions in the central and northern portions of the Taylor Slough Basin were not investigated. The 1984 drawdown period began on the morning of October 15. Control structure S-175 remained open for seven days to stabilize L-31W canal stages at the required 3.50 feet. The overall results of the study indicate that management of wet season stages below 4.50 feet in the upper portion of the L-31W canal causes drainage of the adjacent Taylor Slough wetlands.
