Florida Continues March to Restore America’s Everglades
2004 Everglades Consolidated Report now available

The South Florida Water Management District and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) announce availability of the 2004 Everglades Consolidated Report. Sixth in an annual series, the extensive, 400-page report highlights Florida’s science-based plan to improve water quality and restore America’s Everglades.

“ We made enormous strides in 2003, not only in improving water quality flowing into the Everglades today but in finalizing important programs that will protect the ecosystem for decades to come,” said District Executive Director Henry Dean.

Highlights of the 2004 report:

“Thanks to committed funding, outstanding performance of pollution control programs and science-based plans for further improvements, Florida is saving America’s Everglades,” said DEP Secretary David B. Struhs. “The secret to our success is staying focused on first-rate science, engineering and management. It is a proven formula that has helped us achieve tremendous progress.”

The 2004 Everglades Consolidated Report is written cooperatively by the District and DEP, in compliance with reporting requirements of the Everglades Forever Act. The complete report, which includes an executive summary, 400-page scientific report and appendices, is available at http://www.sfwmd.gov/org/ema/everglades. Printed copies of the executive summary, which includes a CD of the scientific report and appendices plus full reports from four previous years, are available by calling the District’s Technical Publications office at (561) 682-6745.
