Tell Congress: Florida NEEDS the Everglades Reservoir

Restoring the Everglades' historic water flows is a huge task that requires sustained forward progress on numerous projects. 

One such project is the new Everglades Agricultural Area (EAA) Reservoir. The reservoir plan was recently submitted by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to Congress for approval. This must happen in 2018 if we expect real progress to be made and avoid a costly two-year delay before construction can begin.

This month, the full Senate is expected to vote on this year's Water Resources Development Act (WRDA). This legislation will determine the future of Everglades progress for the next two years. While a "placeholder" for the Reservoir is in the current bill, the Senate must replace it with specific language to actually authorize the project now that the U.S. Army Corps has signed off on it.  

 We need your help to tell Congress to authorize the Everglades Agricultural Area (EAA) Reservoir in the upcoming 2018 Water Resources Development Act.
