FWS Jeopardy Opinion for Test 7 of the Experimental Program

In October 1995, the FWS concludes that Test 7 of the 1983-approved Experimental Program (which would have added to changes already explored in earlier tests, changing flows through the L-31W canal into Taylor Slough) would jeopardize the Cape Sable seaside sparrow.  It asks the Corps to develop a Remedial Action Plan.  Tests 1-5 had involved changing how water was delivered from WCA 3 to western and northeastern Shark River Slough.  Test 6 had additionally involved water deliveries into Taylor Slough.
