Comment Period Extended for Central Everglades Project

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Jacksonville District, will be extending the deadline to submit comments on the revised final report for the Central Everglades Planning Project (CEPP). Public, state and agency comments will be accepted through October 3.

We’re extending the comment period to honor the requests from our stakeholders to do so. This is the final review period for all interested parties and we want to make sure everyone has adequate time to review the contents of the report and provide their input,” said Eric Bush, Chief of the Jacksonville District’s Planning and Policy Division.We’re close to the finish line, but we want to make sure we’re not leaving anybody behind in the process and ensure we’re delivering a quality report that we can all stand behind.”

The goal of CEPP is to capture water lost to tide and re-direct the water flow south to restore the central and southern Everglades ecosystem and Florida Bay. The Corps is jointly conducting this planning effort in partnership with the South Florida Water Management District.
