The primary objective
of the project is to develop a
watershed management plan for the Stevenson Creek basin, in
accordance with a cooperative agreement between the
Southwest Florida Water Management District and the
City of Clearwater. It will be used as a tool in the planning,
regulation, and management of Stevenson Creek for future development,
and as a basis for determining and prioritizing capital improvements.
This objective will be met in part, by conducting an analysis
of the watershed in order to characterize the existing watershed
conditions and recommend improvements for
flood protection, natural systems, habitat, water
quality, erosion control, public awareness and involvement,
regulatory control, and capital improvements.
