USFWS land swap forwards Everglades restoration plan
The South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) have finalized an agreement to exchange two parcels of land near the Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge in western Palm Beach County.
It's a deal the District claims will keep Gov. Rick Scott's Restoration Strategies Plan on track to hit its 2025 completion target for design and construction of water treatment and storage projects.
