The National Research Council established the Committee on Independent Scientific Review of Everglades Restoration Progress in 2004 in response to a request from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), with support from the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) and the U.S. Department of the Interior, based on Congress’s mandate in the Water Resources Development Act of 2000 (WRDA 2000). The committee is charged to submit biennial reports that review the CERP’s progress in restoring the natural system. Each biennial report provides an update on natural system restoration progress over the previous 2 years, describes significant accomplishments and addresses important developments in research, monitoring and assessment that inform restoration decision making. In each new report, the committee also identifies issues for in-depth evaluation in light of new CERP program developments, policy initiatives, or improvements in scientific knowledge that have implications for restoration progress.
