This discussion topic submitted by Leana Staton ( leanastaton@hotmail.com) at 5:16 pm on 6/8/00. Additions were last made on Friday, June 9, 2000.

In my discussion I will outline the history of the Everglades. I will discuss the historical flow and the hydroperiods that naturally occured there prior to the 1940's. I will tell about the C&SF project and the results how this impacted the ecology of the Everglades. The new Comprehensive plan developed by the Army Corps of Engineers will be introduced. I will address the positive outcomes of this new endeavor and will also offer several critisms of the plan.
