Abstract: The proposed A-2 Flow Equalization Basin (FEB) project encompasses approximately 14,408 acres of agricultural land located between US Highway 27 and the Miami Canal, in southern Palm Beach County. A USGS Topographic Map and Site Vicinity Map showing the property boundaries are provided on Figures 1 and 2. The property has been cultivated in sugar cane since the early 1960’s. PSI has previously completed a draft Summary Environmental Report for the A-2 FEB, dated September 17, 2012. The report describes the due diligence assessment that was performed by the District when the property was acquired, as well as further assessment and remediation efforts that were performed by PSI, on behalf of Talisman Sugar Corporation. The Summary Environmental Report documents that all known point sources on the property have been addressed and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) has issued Site Rehabilitation Completion Orders (SRCOs) for all known point sources within the project boundary. However, no broad cultivated area sampling was performed on the property at the time the pre-acquisition assessment was completed. Therefore, sampling of the cultivated areas was requested by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) and FDEP.
