Public Meeting: 16 Jan 2002
Lake Belt In Ground Reservoir Technology Pilot Project Public Workshop
|Lake Belt In Ground Reservoir Technology Pilot Project Public Workshop|
During the workshop, Army Corps and Management District staff will describe the pilot project and seek public input for the development of the Lake Belt In Ground Reservoir Technology Pilot Project Management Plan. The draft project management plan will be available at the SFWMD Miami Field Station and is posted on this website at the link above.
The Lake Belt In Ground Reservoir Pilot Project will determine construction technologies, storage efficiencies, impacts on local hydrology, and water quality effects. Water quality assessments will include a determination as to whether the in-ground reservoirs and seepage barriers will allow for storage of untreated waters without concern for groundwater contamination. The Lake Belt In Ground Reservoir Technology Pilot Project is a component of the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan (CERP). The CERP will restore the Everglades through a series of civil engineering and environmental projects and improvements and will cost approximately $7.8 billion. The CERP will be implemented over 25-30 years.
