02-16-2018 | Pelican Landing Water Sustainability Plan

In our continuing efforts to conserve irrigation water reserves throughout the year, the Bayside and Baycreek Community Development Districts have implemented a Water Sustainability Plan. The state of Florida has established fines for disregard of their mandated year-round Phase II Water Restrictions limiting residential irrigation to two days a week. The simple truth is that watering just two days a week, evenly spaced is all our landscape requires to thrive, save for some specialty grasses and exotic ornamental plants.

Special Condition No. 11.

The operable structure shall remain locked at all times unless specific written approval is granted by the South Florida Water Management District for its operation. At no time shall the structure be operated to bypass the water quality detention requirements or to lower the lake levels below the permitted control elevation for the project. If for whatever reason, it is determined that the permittee has not complied with the directives of the South Florida Water Management District, and/or has operated the structure contrary to the intended purpose of an emergency outflow, the structure shall be modified to permanently prevent operation of the structure. In addition, the structure shall be equipped with a locking mechanism to prevent unauthorized use. A staff gage shall be installed upstream of the structure so that lake levels within the project can be quickly determined.

The permission will be based on staff gauge readings at each emergency structure, forecasted storm event, and proximity to dry season. The proposed sluice gates will provide up to a maximum of 12-inches of stage relief from the control elevations. Please refer to Exhibit No. 2.2.
