Corps approves release of final report for Central Everglades project

Staff report

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Jacksonville District is a step closer to finalizing a report on the Central Everglades Planning Project after receiving unanimous approval to release the document for state and agency review in the next few weeks.

This milestone was achieved today at the corps’ Civil Works Review Board in Washington DC, which served as the follow-up meeting to the April 22 CWRB that determined additional time was needed to complete the policy assessment of the report.

The extra review time was taken to ensure consistency with legal requirements, corps’ policies and administration priorities. Today, the board concluded that the final report is ready to be released for state and agency review after their recommended revisions are incorporated into the report.

It is anticipated that the report will be released in the next few weeks.

The final report will be posted on the project’s Web page at: http://www.bit.ly/CentralEverglades_CEPP once the state and agency review period begins.
