Task 11 – Basin Storage/Discharge Analysis

An analysis to quantify the amount of storage that is required to meet flood protection goals for the entire study area will be conducted using the future conditions model developed. The analysis will be separated for each of the four study areas: Whiskey Creek, Lehigh Acres, South Ft. Myers, and Southeast Lee County. The objective of the evaluation is to determine, for example, how many acre-feet of water should be stored during the wet season reduce flooding in each of the four areas. This analysis will be used to provide recommendations on basin allowable discharge rates.
