Background Discussion

Southwest Florida Water Management District (SWFWMD) has agreed to amend the Cooperative Agreement with Manatee County a second time.  This amendment is to add eight (8) additional surface water and rainfall monitoring sites, add one (1) rain gauge at the Manatee County Public Works Department office, 1022 26th Avenue East, Bradenton, FL 34208, and modify contract language for standardizing reporting data and site access.

The original agreement (attached) was executed on December 15, 2015.  The first amendment was executed on February 7, 2017. The new monitoring sites, additional rain gauge, and the establishment of permanent elevation benchmarks for various reporting sites will be critical in the assessment of flooding and also utilized for a wide range of engineering and operational purposes.  Attached please find a copy of the Second Amendment to the Cooperative Agreement.
