Cape Sable Plugs Restoration - - Phase II Environmental Assessment

The National Park Service has completed an Environmental Assessment (EA) for replacing a failed plug on the Raulerson Canal and repairing the plugs on House and Slagle Ditches in the Cape Sable area of Everglades National Park. This project is intended to reestablish the natural function of the marl ridge and restore natural ecological processes to the Cape Sable region by eliminating the unnatural exchange of salt and freshwater through man‐made canals.

The EA evaluates two action alternatives for the Raulerson Canal and two action alternatives at House and Slagle Ditches, along with a no-action alternative at each site. The EA addressed both the potential impacts from the restoration of the plugs as well as the anticipated environmental benefits to Cape Sable that would result.

Please provide us your comments on the proposed Cape Sable Plugs Restoration Phase II Environmental Assessment.
