Abstract: Section 107 of the Energy and Water Development and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016 (Division D of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2016, Public Law 114-113) (hereinafter “Section 107”) provides that the Ten Mile Creek Water Preserve Area Critical Restoration Project (“Project”) is no longer authorized as a Federal project upon execution of a transfer agreement between the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) and the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) that includes the requirement for SFWMD to operate the Project as an environmental restoration project to provide water storage and water treatment options. The Corps is working toward execution of the transfer agreement within 180 days of December 15, 2015, as mandated by Congress. That effort includes conducting an appropriate National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) analysis. The implementation of the selected alternative will provide a portion of the original purpose and benefits of the project, including capturing and storing stormwater run-off during wet periods to reduce excessive freshwater flows to the St. Lucie River and Estuary as well as treatment in the STA to improve water quality before releasing back to Ten Mile Creek during dryer periods.
