‘Farm City’ Panelists Discuss Future Of Everglades

Good overview of the Everglades restoration process and the challenge of balancing multiple interests.  Click title for link to an article that appeared in the Town Crier newspaper - covering the western part of urbanized Palm Beach County.  From the article:
Barnett said a notion of restoring the 4 million acres of Everglades to its original state is not reasonable, logical, rational or attainable. “What is attainable is the 2 million acres that are left. How can we best re-create the hydrologic conditions, the ecologic conditions and the biological conditions that existed prior to the drainage?” he said.
