The Florida Everglades Restoration project is an ongoing effort in Central and Southern Florida to return the environmental ecosystems to their original state. Various government organizations at the federal, state and municipal levels as well as environmental groups have invested research, time and money toward these attempts. Discussion and investigation into the current water progression from the Kissimmee River to Lake Okeechobee remains a topic of concern. The need for restoration exists in both areas, however, the process has been intricate due to the species and wildlife located along both bodies of water. A diverse number of scientific and environmental reports indicate the areas being treated are improving. The accounts also provide an outline for future treatment sites.
