Dec 2011 | Notive of Intent
View a PDF of the Notice of Intent for the CEPP Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) which was published in the Federal Register on December 2, 2011.

In October 2011, the intergovernmental South Florida Ecosystem Restoration Task Force endorsed a state-federal initiative to speed up planning for key restoration projects in the heart of America’s Everglades. Now under way, the Central Everglades Planning Project has set a goal to deliver within two years a finalized plan, known as a Project Implementation Report, for a suite of restoration projects in the central Everglades to prepare for congressional authorization as part of the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan (CERP).

The Central Everglades Planning Project will identify and plan for projects on land already in public ownership to allow more water to be directed south to the central Everglades, Everglades National Park and Florida Bay while protecting coastal estuaries.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) is leading this planning effort in partnership with the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD), which is fully integrated in the technical planning process.

Public participation is a major component of this planning effort. A number of public workshops, sponsored by the South Florida Ecosystem Restoration Task Force’s Working Group, are planned to receive input from the public and keep them informed and engaged as active participants. These workshops will report the Task Force’s feedback to the USACE and SFWMD during the Central Everglades Planning Project. Information on upcoming public workshops and related documents are available on the South Florida Ecosystem Restoration Task Force website.

The USACE and SFWMD are the principal Federal and Non-Federal sponsors for the CERP, and other environmental restoration efforts. Together, they are holding Project Delivery Team (PDT) meetings for the Central Everglades Planning Project in parallel with the South Florida Ecosystem Restoration Task Force’s Working Group-sponsored public workshops. PDT meetings enable federal, state and local agencies and tribal governments to provide their input into the Central Everglades Planning Project.
