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.
