Climate mitigation and adaptation overview. Environmental impacts from drainage water phosphorus (P) loads from Everglades Agricultural Area (EAA) farms in South Florida led to the adoption of best management practices (BMPs). The BMPs have been very successful at reducing EAA farm drainage water P loads. However, analytical investigation into how environmental and management factors affect farm P loading Cited by: The agricultural industry, particularly sugarcane growers in the Everglades Agricultural Area, faced accusations and widespread distrust of environmental practices. While no scientific information was presented that directly linked the outbreak to agriculturalists, some members of the public and environmental activist groups blamed local farmers.

The Everglades are a natural region of tropical wetlands in the southern portion of the U.S. state of Florida, comprising the southern half of a large system begins near Orlando with the Kissimmee River, which discharges into the vast but shallow Lake leaving the lake in the wet season forms a slow-moving river 60 miles (97 km) wide and over.

The Everglades are a wetland ecosystem significantly altered by human development. In this ecosystem's natural state, water flowed southward from the Kissimmee chain of lakes along the meandering Kissimmee River into Lake Okeechobee, an expansive shallow-water lake in the south-central part of the Florida peninsula ().When heavy summer rains occurred, Lake.
