Modifications to the C-111 Project

In 1968, Congress authorized modifications to the C-111 Project for the construction of the Everglades National Park-South Dade Conveyance System (enlarged canals and additional structures/pump stations) to provide water supply to Everglades National Park and South Dade County. Environmental concerns — artificially amplified floods were just as destructive as droughts — caused construction to be discontinued before all authorized project features were completed.
