Abstract: The Central & Southern Florida (C&SF) Project currently functions and was originally authorized to function as a multi-purpose water management system. The Congressionally-authorized purposes of the C&SF Project include flood control, agricultural irrigation, municipal and industrial water supply, preservation of fish and wildlife, water supply to Everglades National Park (ENP), preservation of ENP, prevention of saltwater intrusion, drainage and water control, groundwater recharge, recreation, and navigation. Operations within the project area are currently governed by the 2012 Water ENP and ENP to South Dade Conveyance System (SDCS) Water Control Plan, and subsequent approved deviations thereto (USACE 2012; USACE 2016; USACE 2017). These include the Modified Water Deliveries to Everglades National Park (MWD) Project: G-3273 Constraint Relaxation/S-356 Field Test and S-357N Revised Operational Strategy Increment 1 Plus (Increment 1.1 and 1.2); hereafter referred to as MWD Increment 1 Plus (USACE 2016) and a temporary deviation completed in June of 2017 to relieve high water levels in WCA 3A (USACE 2017). The Environmental Assessment (EA) and Finding of No significant Impact (FONSI) for MWD Increment 1 Plus is dated February 16, 2017. The EA and FONSI for the temporary deviation for WCA 3A is dated June 28, 2017. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Jacksonville District (Corps) is seeking a planned temporary deviation from the 2012 Regulation Schedule for WCA 2A in order to provide high water relief for WCA 3A until April 30, 2018 by reducing total inflows into WCA 3A. The intent of the deviation is to reduce flows into WCA 3A through the S-11 structures. This Proposed Action provides the opportunity to alleviate the effects of high water levels in WCA 3A by holding water higher in WCA 2A.
