Cocohatchee River Basin Study

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Hydraulic Engineering


The report presents the modeling of the Cocohatchee River basin, including 2-D routings for wetland regimes, hydrologic/hydraulic analyses of the agricultural and suburban land uses, and the dynamic wave channel routing (DWOPER, 1984 version). The variety of models were incorporated to simulate the interaction between backwater effects, discharge from developed and undeveloped subbasins, and downstream tidal boundary conditions. The models were calibrated and verified to existing hydrologic and hydraulic conditions with the intent to evaluate future proposed water management alternatives.
