Tampa, FL (AP) - A report says the multibillion-dollar effort
to restore Florida's Everglades has made slow, yet tangible,
progress.
The National Research Council released its congressionally
mandated report Thursday.
The 276-page document was sponsored by the U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers, South Florida Water Management District and U.S.
Department of the Interior.
Listed as progress: water levels have been raised in one
southwest Florida area, and projects have started to restore fresh
water flow to Biscyane and Florida bays.
But the report said that conditions may worsen in some areas of
the Everglades in order to achieve success in other areas.
