In August 2012, Tropical Storm Isaac brought nearly 1 S inches of rain over a 72-hour period in areas of central Palm Beach County, including communities served by the Indian Trail Improvement District, As part of the State's response to the unprecedented rainfall, the South Florida Water Management District took immediate action to respond to flooding in support of local relief efforts, including taking around-the-clock measures to strengthen the Indian Trail Improvement District berm that borders the J.w. Corbett Wildlife Management Area. In September 2012, Governor Rick Scott directed the SFWMD to convene a multiagency working group to determine a timely plan to further strengthen the integrity of the berm.
Multiagency Working Group:
South Florida Water Management District
Palm Beach County
