West Palm Beach, FL (AP) - The chair of a board that oversees
water resources in South Florida has been appointed to a federal
program to develop Everglades restoration policy.

The U.S. Interior Department announced Tuesday that Shannon
Estenoz will become the agency's director of Everglades Restoration
Initiatives.

Interior Secretary Ken Salazar said Estenoz will work with the
National Park Service, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and U.S.
Geological Survey to coordinate federal work on restoration
efforts. She will also collaborate with state, tribal and local
governments.

Estenoz has most recently served as a member of the Governing
Board of the South Florida Water Management District, and as chair
of the district's Water Resources Advisory Commission.
