目的和目标

The south Florida regional landscape has been engineered to provide flood protection and water supply. Lake Okeechobee is the main location for surface water storage in this system.  As part of the Central and Southern Florida (C&SF) Project authorized in 1948 the system was engineered with two large canals that now have the capacity to carry large volumes of water from Lake Okeechobee to the St. Lucie and the Caloosahatchee estuaries. Considerable impacts to the natural ecosystems of south Florida, including the St. Lucie Estuary,  Caloosahatchee Estuary, Lake Okeechobee, and the Florida Everglades stem from large deviations in the quantity and quality of freshwater delivered to these systems relative to a pre-engineered time period. Lake Okeechobee is regulated and managed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) in collaboration with SFWMD who provides information. Currently, they are planning a lake regulation review that will consider alternative regulation schedules that take into consideration the tradeoffs between health of the lake, estuaries, Everglades, as well as provision of flood control and water supply. 

这个项目的目的是进行独立的科学评估,以帮助通知下一奥基乔比湖调节计划的发展。这样做时,水研究所召集一个跨学科的学术审查小组将:

  1. 获取并综合现有相关奥基乔比湖监管计划,对奥基乔比湖的生态环境的影响,并接收湖泊排放河口科学信息;
  2. 识别知识缺口并评估生态影响和的建议修改的LOR权衡需要额外的数据;和
  3. 开发需要新的努力,以填补现有知识空白建议和优先事项
