Water Resource
Status: 
In Progress
Description: 
Under its planning modernization process, the Army Corps is implementing an aggressive planning schedule for the Central Everglades Restoration project that will examine opportunities to restore the original river of grass in the Central flow way of the Florida Everglades by increasing flows of fresh, clean water to the central and southern portions of the Everglades, including the Everglades National Park. The Corps is working to develop a plan for an integrated increment of restoration work in the heart of the Everglades and this pilot project is part of a broader effort to restore the Everglades. The Central Everglades Planning Pilot Project will demonstrate collaborative inter-agency, inter-government, and public engagement. This overall Everglades restoration project, one of the largest and most complex ecosystem restoration projects in the world, requires extensive inter-agency, inter-governmental and public coordination.
