Summary:
Southern Florida is a flat peninsula which slopes very gradually southward toward the Gulf of Mexico. The eastern portion of the watershed of southern Florida has been radically altered by extensive drainage and flood control operations. The Everglades National Park is located at the southern tip of the peninsula. The ecosystem of the Park is dependent for its survival upon high quality water of sufficient quantity flowing from the north and timed to correspond to the life cycles and processes of the biota of the region.

Summary: Southern Florida is a flat peninsula which slopes very gradually southward toward the Gulf of Mexico. The eastern portion of the watershed of southern Florida has been radically altered by extensive drainage and flood control operations. The Everglades National Park is located at the southern tip of the peninsula. The ecosystem of the Park is dependent for its survival upon high quality water of sufficient quantity flowing from the north and timed to correspond to the life cycles and processes of the biota of the region.
Summary: The problems resulting from the dependence of the Park upon the natural flow of high quality water from the north may be instructively analyzed as a case study of the more general and often less dramatically and palpably evident relationship between man's activities and the natural environment. These considerations led the Environmental Study Group of the National Academy of Sciences and National Academny of Engineering to examine these problems. The study concentrates on the law relating to the water rights of the Park.
