Intent To Prepare a Draft and Final Second Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement for Reach 1 on the Herbert Hoover Dike Major Rehabilitation Project, Martin and Palm Beach Counties
Document Number: 07-5278

Date: 2007-10-25

The purpose of the project is to reconstruct and rehabilitate Reach 1 of the Herbert Hoover Dike to prevent catastrophic failure of the system to retain the waters of Lake Okeechobee. On July 8, 2005, the Jacksonville District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) issued a Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (FSEIS) for the Major Rehabilitation actions proposed for Herbert Hoover Dike (HHD), Reach One. Herbert Hoover Dike is the levee that completely surrounds Lake Okeechobee. On September 23, 2005, a Record of Decision was signed adopting the preferred alternative as the Selected Plan for Reach One. As plans and specifications were developed for Reach 1, it became apparent that the cut-off wall with seepage berm alternative would not work for all of Reach 1. The alternative for Reach 1 will be a combination of one or more of the following features dependent on the geology and adjacent land factors with the cut-off wall: Seepage Berm, Relief Trench, Soil Replacement Wedge, Relief Wells, Drainage Feature and Sand Columns. Reach 1 of the HHD extends for approximately 22.5 miles within Martin and Palm Beach Counties, from the St. Lucie Canal at Port Mayaca, south to the Hillsboro Canal at Belle Glade, FL. This study is a cooperative effort between the Corps and the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD).
