RPI has recently been selected for three new contracts with Florida Water Management Districts. Two selections with the Northwest Florida Water Management District include: a prime contract for Ecological Assessments, which may include, among other tasks, continuing support in the development of Minimum Flows and Levels for rivers and springs in the District; and selection as a subcontractor to Amec Foster Wheeler for Water Resources Program Support, where RPI’s role will include environmental sciences tasks such as habitat functional assessments, wetland mitigation, and coastal restoration. RPI was also part of the Environmental Science Associates (ESA) team selected by the Suwannee River Water Management District to update Surface Water Improvement and Management (SWIM) Plans and conduct Gulf restoration planning for the Big Bend Region. This latter assignment is part of a State of Florida restoration strategy development initiative funded by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation’s (NFWF) Gulf Environmental Benefit Fund, stemming from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
