Project Description

This foundational project is for the development of a landscape scale hydrologic assessment, a Regional Restoration Decision Support System and a Comprehensive Hydrologic Assessment and Restoration Plan (CHAR Plan) for planning restoration activities in the Lower Apalachicola River basin. This plan identifies and prioritizes future restoration opportunities throughout the Lower Apalachicola River Basin and Apalachicola Region based on best available science to strategically target and prioritize restoration activities. Once this decision tool is implemented in Florida, it can be utilized throughout the Gulf by adding in the unique data that pertains to each specific region. This project will also provide funding for planning, engineering, design, environmental compliance, and permitting for the implementation of hydrologic restoration work identified as high priority in the Tate’s Hell State Forest (THSF) Hydrologic Restoration Plan developed by the Northwest Florida Water Management District (NWFWMD) and the Florida Forest Service (FFS).
