IDS Public Workshop Set for Next Week
The South Florida Ecosystem Restoration Task Force will be holding a Working Group-sponsored public workshop for the Integrated Delivery Schedule (IDS) Monday, March 9 from 1 p.m. – 5 p.m. at the South Florida Water Management District Headquarters, in West Palm Beach.
The updated Integrated Delivery Schedule will provide the sequencing of federally cost-shared Everglades restoration projects.
It will provide the sequencing strategy for planning, designing, and constructing federal projects cost-shared with local sponsors as part of the Central and Southern Florida Projects (C&SF), based on ecosystem needs, benefits, costs and available funding.
Public discussions related to the IDS will include construction timelines, interdependencies and benefits related to multiple projects.
The Task Force will provide feedback from the workshop to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the South Florida Water Management District during the IDS update. The public is advised that it is possible that one or more members of the Water Resources Advisory Commission and Governing Board of the South Florida Water Management District may attend and participate in this meeting.
