WS-20: Support the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan
Support the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan (CERP).
Continue to support the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan (CERP) and its updated versions as fundamental to Everglades restoration.
Contribute to the ongoing implementation of CERP and updates to implementation plans (such as the Integrated Delivery Schedule) through the South Florida Ecosystem Restoration Task Force and relevant working groups.
Publicize the role of CERP as a regional climate resilience strategy, particularly as a way to increase freshwater flows to the Everglades system, which improves water quality, maximizes regional freshwater storage and aquifer recharge, and creates the potential to abate saltwater intrusion, an increasingly important effort under variable climate conditions and in the face of sea level rise.
