Project Title:

Independent Scientific Review of Everglades Restoration Progress
PIN: WSTB-U-03-04-A        

Major Unit:

Division on Earth and Life Studies

Sub Unit: Water Science and Technology Board

RSO: Johnson, Stephanie

Subject/Focus Area: Earth Sciences; Engineering and Technology; Environment and Environmental Studies; Policy for Science and Technology


Project Scope
This Congressionally mandated activity will review the progress toward
achieving the restoration goals of the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration
Plan (CERP). The committee will meet approximately four times annually to
receive briefings on the current status of the CERP and scientific issues
involved in implementing the Plan. It will publish a report every other year
providing

(1) an assessment of progress in restoring the natural system, which is defined
by section 601(a) of WRDA 2000 as all the land and water managed by the federal
government and state within the South Florida Ecosystem;
(2) discussion of significant accomplishments of the restoration;
(3) discussion and evaluation of specific scientific and engineering issues
that may impact progress in achieving the natural system restoration goals of
the Plan; and
(4) independent review of monitoring and assessment protocols to be used for
evaluation of CERP progress (e.g., CERP performance measures, annual assessment
reports, assessment strategies, etc.)

This study is sponsored by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
The approximate start date for the project is July 1, 2004.

Note (04/02/2010): The project duration has been extended from June 2009 through June 2014.


 
Project Duration: 60 months
