State Establishes Everglades Drainage District

At the direction of Governor Napoleon Bonaparte Broward the Everglades Drainage District is created to reclaim the Everglades for agricultural production. Over the following years, the Everglades Drainage District constructed several canals, which continue to divert water from both Lake Okeechobee and the Everglades. These canals include the St. Lucie, North New River, West Palm Beach, and Miami canals.
