Florida Everglades Restoration


Work has started again on a project to re-store the Florida Everglades.

The South Florida Water Management District broke ground on a new reservoir yesterday.

6-years ago, work began on a much larger project.

They were working to build a 30-foot tall dm to surround a reservoir for storing excess water.

The water district spent nearly $300 million before the project was halted.

Officials say the focus was shifted to water quality.

This time around the district says they're building a scaled-back reservoir using dirt left from the original project.

The project is expected to take 2-years.
