Senior Hydrologist, Everglades Program Team, US Fish and Wildlife Service. Established in June, 2000, the Department of Interior (DOI) Everglades Program Team (EPT) consists of highly respected senior scientists providing the DOI and its affiliates with increased scientific and technical capacity to assess the potential impacts of south Florida restoration efforts on the Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge and the Everglades National Park, the two "book-ends" of the remnant Everglades. The EPT monitors and evaluates progress, tracks and interprets research projects, provides scientific advice, publishes information, assures progress in meeting obligations and responsibilities under the Federal-State Consent Decree, and is available to provide direct input to the Department of Justice, DOI counsel, and Park and Refuge decision makers. The Team addresses new technologies that will help achieve the lowest phosphorous levels and to measure and monitor compliance.
