About Canal L 31 E, FL

Canal L 31 E is an 18.8-mile man-made canal and cultural feature that has an elevation of three feet or one meter and is located in Miami-Dade County, Florida. Its drainage basin is 58 square miles and consists of a levee and a canal that runs alongside the shoreline of Biscayne Bay. The site within the Model Lands Basin also drains to the west borrow canal of L 31 E. 

Additionally, Canal L 31 E is a system of water control structure that provides communities residing at the southern tip of Florida, including Homestead, Florida City, and the Florida Keys, protection from the sea, both above ground and through the aquifer below. The canal is an original piece of the regional system of levees and canals built in the 1960s for the purposes of flood protection, water supply, and to support economic growth and development in South Florida called the Central and Southern Florida Flood Control Project. The canal’s levee helped prevent Hurricane Irma’s storm surge from flooding nearby communities in 2017. The canal is also connected to the regional drainage system so runoff from rainfall collects there.
