The Kissimmee River Restoration Projects

Kissimmee River Restoration is in the final throes with construction completion slated for 2015. The last few construction projects are underway to restore 27,000 acres of Kissimmee River floodplain. Projects include filling of portions of the C-38 canal, dredging remnant oxbows and implementing flood protection measures so local residents maintain the same level of service post restoration. Once all the construction features are complete the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will implement a change to the regulation schedule for the Kissimmee Chain of Lakes and the River increasing water levels approximately 1.5 to 2.0 feet. Threatened and endangered species abound within and near the construction areas and it’s always a delight to behold.
