SOUTH MIAMI-DADE WATERSHED PLAN AND STUDY

Dot  K&S is currently working on the South Miami-Dade Watershed Study and Plan (SMDWSP). The South Miami-Dade Watershed is an approximately 370 square mile area located in the southeastern portion of Miami-Dade County. It is increasingly recognized as one of the most critical watersheds in Florida. The Watershed plays a vital role in the health of Biscayne Bay. It also provides for the urban and agriculture needs of the County. Each drop of water and every activity on the land in South Miami-Dade County impacts the aquatic, natural and human environment of the Watershed. 

 

 

 

 

 

The SMDWSP is a long-term planning and water resources study required by the Comprehensive Development Master Plan (CDMP). Divided into five major task areas, the watershed Study includes a wide-ranging look at South Miami-Dade County’s population growth; infrastructure; land ownership, including agricultural, industrial and urban land uses; pollution; water resources; wildlife; and natural areas. The Watershed Plan, which is based on the Study, will be the County’s planning roadmap to 2050.

 

 

The study includes an examination and analysis of:
• Land use patterns;
• Examples and models of mechanisms of conservation;
• All relevant studies pertaining to the Study Area;
• Property rights of landowners as they relate to objectives of the Plan;
• Modeling and assessment of the quality, quantity, timing and
  distribution of waters into and of Biscayne National Park;
• Existing and needed studies of freshwater and groundwater  supply;
• Methods and policies for best management practices of all sources of  water runoff and levels 
  of service for flood control in the Study Area;
• Socioeconomic factors for optimization of the objectives to  the Plan; and
• Ways to integrate the Plan into the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan
