Webinars to explain schedule for Everglades projects

Posted

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Jacksonville District invites  partners, the public and stakeholders to participate in two virtual Integrated Delivery Schedule educational webinars and Stakeholder Listening Sessions on Friday, Aug. 5, at 3 p.m. and Friday, Aug. 19, 2022 at 3 p.m.

The purpose of these engagements is to provide partners, stakeholders and the public with an opportunity to learn more about the Integrated Delivery Schedule or ‘IDS’ and to host a listening session.

The IDS reflects the sequencing strategy for planning, design, and construction for the South Florida Ecosystem Restoration Program. This is a living document that synchs up federal and state program and project priorities to give us a clear path forward.

The Integrated Delivery Schedule (IDS) is a forward-looking snapshot of upcoming design and construction schedules and programmatic costs at a “top” line level for the South Florida Ecosystem Restoration (SFER) Program. It includes Modified Water Deliveries to Everglades National Park, Critical Projects, Kissimmee River Restoration, non-Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan (CERP) Central and Southern Flood (C&SF), and CERP projects. The Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan (CERP) focuses on the “getting the water right.” CERP—the largest aquatic ecosystem restoration effort in the nation, spanning more than 18,000 square miles — is designed to improve the health of more than 2.4 million acres.

The IDS synchronizes program and project priorities with the State of Florida and achieves the CERP restoration objectives at the earliest practicable time, consistent with annual funding updates and the interdependencies between project components.

These sessions will use the 2021 IDS as a basis for the presentations. Questions and answers will be moderated virtually through the WebEx chat.
