The Everglades Foundation today released the following statement, attributable to CEO Eric Eikenberg, regarding the South Florida Water Management District’s announcement to expand capacity of S333 spillway and remove the Old Tamiami Trail.

“We are delighted that these important components of the Central Everglades Plan will be fast tracked to reduce dangerous high-water levels and increase water flow into Everglades National Park. These features, which were not previously scheduled for completion before 2026, will be vital to protecting valuable habitat and moving water south.”
