What is WERP?

  • The Western Everglades Restoration Plan (WERP) seeks to use a series of active and passive water management features and water quality features, and make alterations to existing canals and levees. The goals of the project are to improve the quantity, quality, timing and distribution of water in the Western Everglades in the effort to re-establish ecological connectivity, reduce the severity and frequency of wildfires, and restore low nutrient conditions.

The Problem

  • Our concern with WERP is specifically the location of the Wingate Mill STA
  • The Wingate Mill STA is located in a pristine natural environment.
