A progress report said Friday, a $13.5 billion project to restore the Florida Everglades has had limited impact even as the embattled ecosystem faces threats from climate change and invasive species. The biennial report on the project by the National Research Council said the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan, started in 1999 to restore Florida’s “river of grass” over 30 to 40 years, has been hindered by intermittent federal funding. Since the council’s last update two years ago, the reports said, CERP has had “modest restoration progress focused on the edges of the Everglades (and) considerable state effort to improve water quality.”
