Summary:
Because of the size and complexity of the Central and Southern Florida project and the difficulties involved in preparing one comprehensive EIS, a decision was made to divide the project into six segments: (1) Lake Okeechobee, (2) Upper St. Johns River Basin, (3) South Date County Conveyance Canals and East Coast Backpumping, (4) Hendry County, (5) Kissimmee River Basin, and (6) Martin County. The Lake Okeechobee segment was selected as the most significant single aspect of the C&SF project on which the first EIS should be prepared. Because of the impact on water supply needs of most of the balance of the southeast coastal area and the advanced stage of construction, it was given top priority. About 85 percent of the facilities required to raise the level to 17.5 feet are completed.
