Non-CERP south Florida ecosystem restoration projects are projects that were not authorized by the Water Resources Development Act of 2000 (WRDA), the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan (CERP). They are however interrelated to the overall efforts to restore the south Florida ecosystem.
The purpose of the Tamiami Trail Modifications Project (a component of Modified Water Deliveries) is to improve waterflow from north of Tamiami Trail in Water Conservation area 3B south to Northeast Shark River Slough within the Everglades National Park.
