Summary:
One of this administration's most significant environmental initiatives is the restoration of the South Florida ecosystem. Responding to growing signs of the deterioration of this ecosystem, federal agencies established the South Florida Ecosystem Restoration Task Force in 1993 to coordinate ongoing federal restoration activities in this area, such as modifying the effects of engineering projects that have diverted water from the Everglades and reducing agricultural pollutants in the water entering wildlife refuges and the Everglades. The Water Resources Development Act of 1996 formalized the Task Force and expanded its membership to include state, local, and tribal representatives and charged it with coordinating and facilitating the efforts to restore the ecosystem.
