RCAP Database | Water Supply, Management and Infrastructure: WS-5

Develop and apply appropriate hydrologic and hydraulic models to further evaluate the efficacy of existing water management systems and flood control/drainage infrastructure under variable climate conditions. Quantify the capacity and interconnectivity of the surface water control network and develop feasible adaptation strategies.

Planning Horizon: 
Short (0-5 years)
Potential Partners: 
Counties, SFWMD, Drainage/Water Control Districts
Potential Funding Sources: 
FEMA, USGS, NOAA
Estimated Resources Required: 
Some projects already under development. Additional funds will improve assessments through more accurate representation of existing infrastructure and refined grid.
Milestone Progress: 
Model development and report of findings with recommendations.
