Summary:
In south Florida, controversy has existed among urban, agricultural, fisheries, tourism, and natural resource interests over methods to restore the Everglades National Park and Florida Bay. Currently, elevating the water table and increasing the flow of water to Everglades National Park in order to restore more natural hydroperiods is proposed as a solution by the Army Corps of Engineers (COE), South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD), and the Everglades National Park (ENP), based on studies by hydrologists and researchers at those agencies.

Summary: In south Florida, controversy has existed among urban, agricultural, fisheries, tourism, and natural resource interests over methods to restore the Everglades National Park and Florida Bay. Currently, elevating the water table and increasing the flow of water to Everglades National Park in order to restore more natural hydroperiods is proposed as a solution by the Army Corps of Engineers (COE), South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD), and the Everglades National Park (ENP), based on studies by hydrologists and researchers at those agencies.
Summary: However, the impact that these water management decisions may have on agriculture in the area has not been addressed to the satisfaction of the local agricultural community. This report summarizes and analyzes many years of work completed by the USACOE, the SFWMD, and the ENP, and makes recommendations for additional work that may improve the planning, design and operation of water management facilities in the south Dade County area.
