2009 Parsons Report
In November of 2009, a study was published by Parsons. It is entitled "San Antonio Watershed (L455-13) Stormwater Inventory & Floodplain BMP". It is a summary of a larger Water Management Plan. According to the study:
A Watershed Management Plan includes five major elements: Digital Topographic Information, Watershed Evaluation, Watershed Management Plan, Implementation of Best Management Practices (BMP), and Data Management of Watershed Parameters and Modeling Updates. This WMP was developed in accordance with the Southwest Florida Water Management District's Watershed Management Guidelines and Specifications (August 2002) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency's Guidelines and Specifications for Flood Hazard Mapping Partners.Due to project budgetary constraints, this document is a summary of the findings of the WMP for the City of San Antonio study and has been tailored to meet the specific needs of the City of San Antonio, Florida.
It has been available for viewing at City Hall since its publication. It is now available online. Due to its size, it has been stored on Dropbox.com.
