The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Jacksonville District, will host a virtual public meeting Aug. 27 to share information about progress on the Central Everglades Planning Project South (CEPP South) phase via webinar and teleconference.

The next Public Information meeting will be held Aug. 27, 2020, from 2-4 p.m. Due to continuing COVID-19 restrictions on public meetings, this will be held online only.

Registration is required before the meeting.

There are a few changes we are making to improve the flow of the meeting and avoid issues with speakers talking over each other or disturbing participants with background noise by leaving their phone lines open.

  • Online registration is required for all participants.
  • All lines except those who are scheduled to speak will be muted during the meeting.
  • This meeting will not include a public comment period, but any members of the public who have questions can enter them in the chat box during the webinar.  Those questions will be answered later on the Jacksonville District website at You can also find the answers to questions posed by the public during the February update meeting on that page.

The CEPP project will set the foundation for restoring the central portion of the Everglades ecosystem redirect water that is currently sent to tide through the estuaries to the central Everglades, Everglades National Park and Florida Bay. CEPP is broken into three different sections, CEPP South, CEPP North, and CEPP New Water. CEPP South project is deigned to remove barriers to water flow in the southern portion of the project's footprint.
