Multi-Contract Environmental Restoration of the Kissimmee River Basin

Stanley Consultants provided the design of three one-bay and one two-bay spillways, channel improvements, and adjacent roadway and utility relocations, as well as traffic control during construction of Kissimmee River basin restoration.

The Kissimmee River Restoration project is part of the Kissimmee River Florida project, a multi-contract environmental restoration of the Kissimmee River basin.  The Kissimmee River basin encompasses approximately 3,000 square miles, stretching from near Orlando to Lake Okeechobee.  The project to restore the Kissimmee River has two sub-basins.  The effort in the lower basin, referred to as the Kissimmee River Restoration, begins at the outlet of Lake Kissimmee.

The river's floodplain slopes gradually to the south from an elevation of approximately 50 feet at Lake Kissimmee to about 15 feet at Lake Okeechobee.  The contract for Istokpoga is part of the lower basin effort.

Additional capacity is needed in the Istokpoga Canal to allow restoration of the meandering channel of the Kissimmee River and still provide flood protection for the region.

New right-of-way must be obtained to build storage spoil piles.  One innovative approach is the reuse of the muck that is excavated from the new canal.  The muck will be spread over the spoil piles to help stabilize the levee embankment which will support a vegetative cover.

"Stanley (Consultants) was diligent on this project.  They weree on time and provided more information thatn we requested".
