“Project managers from the Corps and our partners at the South Florida Water Management District will provide updates on all phases of the Central Everglades Planning Project, or CEPP, including the CEPP South, CEPP North, CEPP New Water and CEPP Everglades Agricultural Area phases,” said CEPP Senior Project Manager, Christyn Figueroa. “We will talk about the current project status for each phase, including design and construction, and future plans.”

CEPP focuses restoration on more natural flows into and through the central and southern Everglades by increasing storage and treatment south of Lake Okeechobee, improving conveyance to the Central Everglades and removing barriers to flow to Everglades National Park.

The Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan outlines the projects for returning the lifeblood of the Everglades – water – to its historic quantity, quality, timing and distribution. The overarching objective of the Plan is the restoration, preservation, and protection of the south Florida ecosystem while providing for other water-related needs of the region, including water supply and flood protection.
