Is the CERP enough to restore the everglades?

The CERP is a strategy that was proposed and enacted in 2000 in order to restore the Everglades, Biscayne National Park, Lake Okeechobee, the Florida Bay, and Caloosahatchee River. The main reason behind this implementation is to restore natural flows of water and the water quality found within. By this project being put in place, it would allow and benefit over 2.4 million acres of land and water in South Florida’s Ecosystem. It was said that this project would take approximately 30 years to complete, but this would ultimately, in the long run, benefit the Everglades as it would construct reservoirs, fill canals, avoid flooding, and restore water flows all throughout.To begin with, some believe that this project would ultimately benefit South Florida’s Ecosystem. For instance, it could be said that the CERP has accomplished several positive results, but there is still a lot of work that has to be done in order for it to be successfully completed. However, some analysts believe that the CERP is only focusing on the restorationportion of the Everglades and its surroundings, but it does not take accountability for the climate change that is occurring which is still a challenge for many. Hence, some believe that the CERP needs to take into account climate change in order to achieve a good level of water flow and weather tolerance. This is because climate change can ultimately affect the amount of water in wetlands, reservoirs, and canals.
