This information was developed in accordance with the Southwest Florida Water Management District’s Watershed Management Program Guidance. The Guidance defines the watershed parameters used to develop a computer model that simulates projected surface water levels. The model includes watershed and rainfall event simulation parameters such as a design rainfall event and associated antecedent moisture conditions. This information, including projected surface water levels, was reviewed for substantial conformance with Guidance, through a public review and comment period, and refined based on comments. The parameters and models are revised periodically based upon updated information and issued Environmental Resource Permits (ERPs). The District will consider site specific details and other refinements during the regulatory review process to revise model parameters and results. Therefore, the District cannot guarantee its completeness and shall not be liable for any damages suffered as a result of using this information. Those interested in using this information should contact the District for the current version of a model and results for a specific watershed. ERP applicants are encouraged to schedule a pre-application meeting(s) with the District’s Regulatory staff to discuss the use of any watershed study/model in a subsequent ERP application.
