Seeking to maintain a symbiotic relationship with counties within the district’s jurisdiction, Southwest Florida Water Management District (SWFWMD) cooperatively funded the Pithlachascotee-Anclote Conservation Effort (PACE) with Pasco County. This watershed analysis was comprised of three watersheds: Pithlachascotee, Anclote East, and Anclote West. The primary goal of completing the analysis was to evaluate Best Management Practice alternatives, which may include utilizing SWFWMD property to divert excess flows.

Engaging under our existing Professional Consulting Services contract with SWFWMD, SSMC was tasked with providing hydrographic and topographic surveys of 29 areas to search for stormwater structures within Pasco County. Additionally, 158 cross-section lines were performed of existing waterways, utilizing conventional topographic collection methods along banks, while deriving sonar points in 5’ horizontal intervals along deeper sections of the channel.


“I had the pleasure of working with a couple of your employees over the past couple weeks. James Murphy and Beau Boyles; very professional and “can do” attitudes. They worked well with the crew from PSI and the task was completed one day ahead of schedule with no underground utilities damaged.”
