Abstract:
The Cape Sable peninsula is located on the southwestern tip of the Florida peninsula within Everglades National Park (ENP). Lake Ingraham, the largest lake within Cape Sable, is now connected to the Gulf of Mexico and western Florida Bay by canals built in the early 1920’s. Some of these canals breached a natural marl ridge located to the north of Lake Ingraham. These connections altered the landscape of this area allowing for the transport of sediments to and from Lake Ingraham. Saline intrusion into the formerly fresh interior marsh has impacted the local ecology. Earthen dams installed in the 1950’s and 1960’s in canals that breached the marl ridge have repeatedly failed. Sheet pile dams installed in the early 1990’s subsequently failed resulting in the continued alteration of Lake Ingraham and the interior marsh. The Cape Sable Canals Dam Restoration Project, funded by ENP, proposes to restore the two failed dams in Lake Ingraham. The objective of this study was to collect discharge and water quality data over a series of tidal cycles and flow conditions to establish discharge and sediment surrogate relations prior to initiating the Cape Sable Canals Dam Restoration Project. A dry season synoptic sampling event was performed on April 27-30, 2009. (Source: Zucker, M. and Boudreau, C. 2010. Sediment Transport on Cape Sable, Everglades National Park, FL. Joint Federal Interagency Conference. <http://sofia.usgs.gov/publications/papers/sedtrans_csable/index.html>) In order to gather baseline data prior to restoration of the dams on East Cape Canal Extension and the Homestead Canal, a study entitled “The Sediment Transport and Saline Intrusion on Cape Sable Project” was initiated by the U.S Geological Survey (USGS)-National Park Service Water Quality Partnership Program. The objectives of the study are to measure continuous surface water flows and estimate suspended sediment concentrations (SSC) near the locations of the failed dams. Continuous water quality data from in situ meters and field readings during SSC sampling will be analyzed to evaluate predictors of SSC from a surrogate parameter(s). Continuous data are being collected from 2009 through 2010. SSC samples and additional field readings will be collected during four synoptic events throughout this same time period. Sampling events will be conducted during the wet and dry seasons. (Source: Zucker, M. and Boudreau, C. 2010. Sediment Transport on Cape Sable, Everglades National Park, FL.

ATTRIBUTE ACCURACY REPORT: Surface Water Information and Data Disclaimer Realtime streamflow data available on the District Home Pages are PROVISIONAL data that have not been reviewed or edited. These data may be subject to significant change and are not citeable until reviewed and approved by the U.S. Geological Survey. Realtime streamflow data may be changed after review because the stage-discharge relationship may have been affected by: algal and aquatic growth in the stream, sediment movement, and/or malfunction of recording equipment Data are reviewed periodically to ensure accuracy. Each station record is considered PROVISIONAL until the data are published. The data are usually published within 6 months of the end of the water year. Data users are cautioned to consider carefully the provisional nature of the information before using it for decisions that concern personal or public safety or the conduct of business that involves substantial monetary or operational consequences. Information concerning the accuracy and appropriate uses of these data or concerning other hydrologic data may be obtained by contacting the individual listed on the data page. (http://fl.water.usgs.gov/data.disclaimer.html) The USGS Ft. Lauderdale Science Center follows USGS guidelines and protocol when collecting, processing, and publishing hydrologic and water quality data. Protocols covering the collection of continuous surface water, ground water, water quality are readily available. n COMPLETENESS REPORT: Summary of available data for East Side Creek: http://waterdata.usgs.gov/nwis/nwisman/?site_no=250802081035500 ; Summary of available data for Homestead Canal: http://waterdata.usgs.gov/nwis/uv?site_no=250921081054200 ; Summary of available data for East Cape Canal: http://waterdata.usgs.gov/nwis/uv?site_no=250813081040000
