Model studies were conducted to evaluate the hydrology of the proposed Loxahatchee Wetlands Mitigation Bank. SEEP2D was used to estimate seepage through a levee separating the Bank from the Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge. A wetlands model, WDWBM, was then used to evaluate the coupled surface water-groundwater processes, to determine the long-term hydroperiods. The results showed that wetland hydrology could be maintained through the natural balance of direct rainfall and evapotranspiration, without having to rely on seepage from the Refuge or other sources of water.
