In 2000, the state and federal government passed the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan (CERP) to address many infrastructure projects needed to restore the Everglades. CERP, located in Title IV of Public Law 106-541 also known as the Water Resources Development Act of 2000, is comprised of 68 component projects and was slated to cost $8.2 billion. A revised cost estimate is anticipated in 2020, with some projecting the cost of CERP to be over $20 billion. None of the 68 projects in CERP are expected to be completed by 2020. To date, the federal government has appropriated approximately $1.37 billion and the state approximately $2.64 billion for a total of $4 billion. The National Academies of Sciences in their 2018 biennial review of CERP estimated that, at current funding rates, completing just authorized projects would take approximately 65 years.
