     Everglades Protection Area Tributary Basins
  Long-Term Plan for Achieving Water Quality Goals
                 Acquisition of Survey Data


Project Manager: Howard Ehmke

Project Description:
 Additional topographic surveys are needed within the
   footprint of the STAs to more clearly delineate ground
   surface elevations between interior levees and control
   structures
 Conduct additional vertical control surveys at flow
   measurement stations to confirm, and correct where
   necessary, gage datum elevations

         Water Budget Analysis at STA-3/4


 Change in storage = Inflow(t) - Outflow(t) ±  (t)

 Inflow structures discharges represent about
  90% of flow in STA-3/4
 Outflow structures discharges represent about
  90% of flow in STA-3/4
 The other components of the water budget:
  rainfall and ET all together are within 8%

     The Improvement of Flow Data Leads to
      More Accurate Water Budget Analysis


 Improved flow equations in STA-1W and STA-5 are
  used in STA-3/4
 The water budget residuals and seepage account
  for only 2% in STA-3/4
 Errors within ±5 percent are due to uncertainties in
  the streamflow data
 The use of improved equations reduces the water
  budget residuals:
       From 11 to 4% in STA-1W
       From 5 to zero in STA-5

Project Manager: Yanling Zhao

Project Description:
   Assist the EAA Storage Reservoirs Phase 1 PDT in the acquisition
    and analysis of calibration data sets for water quality impacts
    associated with reservoirs. These calibration data sets will be
    obtained from similar water bodies in central and southern Florida
    i.e., Lake Apopka, Lake Jessup, the Brevard County Stick Marsh
    and the Sun Ag reservoir, as well as Lake Istokpoga and other
    large-scale water supply reservoirs in South Florida.
   Develop data files and summary report(s) of data sets collected and
    analyzed for use in calibrating reservoir components of water quality
    model(s)
