[Question to keep in mind as you read this EPA letter: The cost of the plan is $1,5 billion. In fact, that's the state committment sought by EPA. Why is EPA and SFWMD playing games and not providing the the public with lthe true costs of this plan? SFWMD's exective director, Melissa Meeker, acknowledgd to her board the cost of the plan includes another $770 million alreay invested in elements that make up this plan. What's the motive here? -- The Everglades Puzzle]


 Regarding the article, “EPA OKs $880 million Everglades cleanup plan”: We are all painfully familiar with the decline of the Everglades.
