CERP Project:
Broward County Secondary Canal System

The purpose of this project is to reduce water shortages in the local wellfields and stabilize saltwater interface. This will be accomplished by pumping excess water from C-9, C-12 and C-13 Canal Basins into the coastal canal systems in order to maintain canal stages at optimum levels. To maintain these stages, water will be drawn from other sources such as Site 1 Impoundment and North Lake Belt Storage Area, Lake Okeechobee and the Water Conservation Area when basin water is insufficient. This project includes a series of water control structures, pumps and canal improvements in C-9, C-12 and C-13 Canal Basins and the east basin of the North New River Canal in central and southern Broward County.
