Summary:
Everglades National Park is at the southern periphery of an extensive hydrologic system that furnishes water to southern Florida. The park encompasses about 1.5 million acres and extends southward some 50 miles from the Tamiami Canal to Florida Bay (fig. 1). The fresh-water portion of the Everglades is commonly considered a swamp; more properly it is a broad, shallow, slowly moving river-- poetically the "river of grass". Sluggish overland flow of the river results from low relief, a land slope of only 6 feet in the 50 miles from north to south.
