Statement on New C-111 Spreader Canal Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

posted on January 11, 2013 in Everglades,Florida Bay

Statement from Megan Tinsely, Audubon Florida Everglades Policy Associate on the New C-111 Spreader Canal:

Today marks significant progress toward reversing ecological decline in the Southern Everglades. The Western component (first phase) of the C-111 Spreader Canal project is now complete and operational. Keeping more water in Taylor Slough for delivery to Florida Bay will re-hydrate wetlands suffering for decades from decreased water flows, helping to increase productivity and thus populations of wading birds like Roseate Spoonbills, game fish, and crocodiles.
