CERP Project:
Central Lake Belt Storage Area

The purpose of the feature is to store excess water from Water Conservation Areas 2 and 3 and to provide environmental water supply deliveries to: (1) Northeast Shark River Slough, (2) Water Conservation Area 3B, and (3) to Biscayne Bay, in that order, if available. It is assumed that water diverted from WCAs 2 and 3 is of adequate quality to return to the Everglades Protection Area and Biscayne Bay. Final configurations and treatment requirements were to come from a Water Preserve Areas Feasibility Study. Though drafted, the study scope became too large, so projects are being revisited separately.
