I-75 Canal Improvements: MIKE SHE Modeling
Client: South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD, as sub-consultant of Stanley Consultants)
Year: 2019 - 2021
The SFWMD plans to assess improvements to the I-75 and Green Canals to enhance conveyance and flood protection. A hydrologic and hydraulic (H&H) assessment study was proposed to provide the basis of design for the improved cross-sectional configurations of these canals.
The flood protection improvement scenario evaluations produced slight decrease (less than 0.4’) in peak stages in the canals.
New gate operation seasonal rules at GG2 structure were recommended to produce the best groundwater benefits during the dry and wet seasons while not elevating the wet season stages upstream of the removed I75W1 structure with respect to existing conditions.
