2009 System Status Report (SSR)
RECOVER’s 2009 System Status Report (SSR) is now available as a web-based report. This approach allows managers, stakeholders and scientists with different degrees of technical expertise and interest to easily explore the SSR at the desired level of detail. Readers can “drill down” from general information all of the way to the very technical annual reports used to compile the SSR. The in-depth assessments were developed using data collected for RECOVER’s Monitoring and Assessment Plan (MAP) program, data from other programs, and historical data. This report is essential to the CERP Adaptive Management Program. Results from this and future SSRs will be used to both track positive responses to CERP actions and identify management actions that may be necessary for CERP to achieve its restoration goals.

RECOVER – Who We Are!
RECOVER is an arm of the Comprehensive Plan (CERP) responsible for linking science and the tools of science to a set of system-wide planning, evaluation and assessment tasks. Our objectives are to:
- Evaluate and assess Comprehensive Plan performance
- Refine and improve the plan during the implementation period, and
- Ensure that a system-wide perspective is maintained throughout the restoration program
RECOVER is composed of three technical teams that align with its mission areas:
RECOVERs Mission – What We Do!
RECOVER provides essential support to the CERP in meeting its goals and purposes by applying a system-wide and integrative perspective to the planning and implementation of the plan. RECOVER conducts scientific and technical evaluations and assessments for improving CERP's ability to restore, preserve, and protect the south Florida ecosystem while providing for the region's other water-related needs. RECOVER communicates and coordinates the results of these evaluations and assessments. The goal of restoration is the recovery and sustainability of the defining characteristics of the greater Everglades ecosystem.
