The Everglades still need your support

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers submitted the Everglades Agricultural Area (EAA) Reservoir plan to Congress for authorization. It must be approved in 2018 if we expect real progress to be made and avoid a costly two-year delay before construction can begin.

The U.S. Senate is expected to vote soon on this year’s Water Resources Development Act (WRDA), which has already passed the House. This legislation will determine the future of Everglades progress for the next two years. While a “placeholder” for the Reservoir is in the current bill, the Senate must replace it with specific language to actually authorize the project now that the U.S. Army Corps has signed off on it.
