CERP Project:
Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge Internal Canal Structures

The purpose of this feature is to improve the timing and location of water depths within the Refuge. There would be two water control structures in the northern ends of the perimeter canals encircling the Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge (Water Conservation Area 1) located in Palm Beach County. It is assumed that these structures will remain closed except to pass Stormwater Treatment Area 1 East and Stormwater Treatment Area 1 West outflows and water supply deliveries to the coastal canals.
