On Monday, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announced they will be holding a LOSAM meeting Wednesday from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. The focus of the meeting will be to provide an overview of the final model data and an update on the operational guidance development.
The Corps will be instituting a plan that will direct how they manage Lake Okeechobee for the next decade. The new plan is supposed to kick in later this year.
LOSOM Project Manager Tim Gysan says the agenda will include an overview of the modeling results of the LOSOM Preferred Alternative and an update on the operational guidance development. “The guidance provides the instructions to the water managers and operators and defines the ability of LOSOM to address the varied climate conditions we may experience over the next decade. We value your continued participation in this development as we work towards the Draft EIS and water control plan.”
The Project Delivery Team members include the federal officials and elected officers of state, local or tribal governments or their designated employees with authority to act on their behalf acting in their official capacities.
Members of the public are welcome to attend the meeting and provide comment during the designated public comment periods. How to log into the meeting can be found HERE.
