Restoration Strategies

In 2013, Governor Scott signed legislation that provides $32 million annually in state funding for the $880 million long-term Restoration Strategies Plan. When fully implemented, Restoration Strategies will provide a consistent source of clean water for 8 million Floridians, while restoring habitat and ecology, and increasing recreational opportunities in the greater Everglades area.
