Peace River Cumulative Impact Study (CIS)


The Peace River Cumulative Impact Study was mandated in 2003 by the Florida Legislature to assess the cumulative impacts of changes in landform and hydrology in the Peace River basin prior to DEPís development of a Watershed Management Plan.

The primary CIS goals are to enhance and protect the hydrology and ecology of the Peace River watershed by:

  • Recovery of baseflows and more natural hydrology
  • Preservation and restoration of in-stream and floodplain habitats

The CIS objectives are:

  1. Review and analyses relevant available data and previous work
  2. Use analytical tools to characterize status and trends in important watershed parameters
  3. Qualify and quantify where possible the relative effects of key watershed stressors
  4. Develop recommendations for improved regulatory framework
