Everglades Refuge stalled

Birds fly in a restored marsh. Another section of Kissimmee River restoration is finished, adding to the billions of dollars spent to undo severe damage from flood-control efforts. The newly refurbished portion of river also adds to the case for why Orlando probably won¿t be able to get much future drinking water from the big lakes in Osceola County that drain to  the river. Turns out, scientists are realizing the river needs that water to stay healthy and the river is a vital part of the greater Everglades ecosystems. The restored section is about midway between Orlando and Lake Okeechobee.  December 21, 2009 Photo by George Skene/Orlando Sentinel B58127448Z.111/4/2011
