New project helps Everglades Restoration plan
The South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) and a host of federal and state partners will break ground on a
vital project that represents continued momentum for Everglades restoration. The C-111 Spreader Canal project, a component of the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan (CERP), will restore freshwater flows to Florida Bay through Taylor Slough, preserve clean water for Everglades National Park and maintain flood control for eastern communities.
Florida Bay is an integral component of the Everglades ecosystem and is a valuable economic resource for the region. The groundbreaking marks the start of construction for pump stations and other project features.
