$1.9B APPROVED FOR EVERGLADES RESTORATION

WEST PALM BEACH

The process to get federal funding for long-planned Everglades restoration projects is underway, now that the state agency that oversees those projects has approved the $1.9 billion plan.

Last week, the South Florida Water Management District's governing board approved a resolution signing on as the local sponsor of the Central Everglades Planning Project. That's a plan to redirect more water south of Lake Okeechobee into the central Everglades and south into Everglades National Park and Florida Bay.
