The research effort on which this book is based has involved continuous analyses of
various river–estuarine and coastal systems in the southeastern United States since 1970.
These long-term studies have been carried out using a combination of field descriptive
and experimental (lab and field) approaches.

Kissimmee–Okeechobee–Florida Everglades–Florida Bay–Coral Reef System
10.1 The System
The Kissimmee–Okeechobee–Florida Everglades–Florida Bay–coral reef (KOEFR) system, located in central and south Florida, is among the most unique ecological resources in the United States. This system formed over thousands of years as a major wetland represented by the Kissimmee River vegetation, the Florida Everglades, the Big Cypress Swamp, and the coastal mangroves and glades (Mitsch and Gosselink, 1993).
The landmass on which we live is an integral part of our water catchment. Any human activity
will inevitably have some consequences on the availability and composition of fresh
waters. These consequences are becoming increasingly important and detectable as the human
population grows. The problem is to be addressed at the global scale, as frequently,
decisions made have inter-regional and international impacts, and must therefore be coordinated.
In a number of European Member States, for example, the availability of water resources
depends on the activities of other upstream countries.
Tar-Pamlico River Basin, North Carolina. The state established a total,
allowable discharge level for the basin. The state approved a strategy
whereby an sssociation of sewage treatment plants can meet this level
either by making modifications to their facilities and/or by making a
monetary contribution to a voluntary state program that helps farmers
reduce nonpoint source pollution. Contributions to this program will begin
in September 1992.

The DSS will enable examination of existing conditions, forecasting of future conditions, and simulation of
alternatives that will be ecologically sustaining and socially desired. The DSS will address watershed, water
quality, water quantity, groundwater and ecosystem restoration needs at the small watershed, major
watershed, tributary river, and main stem Minnesota River reach levels of spatial scale. The DSS will
enable forecasting future conditions.
The EPA’s ecosystem protection programs encompass a wide range of approaches that address
specific at-risk regional areas and larger categories of threatened systems, such as urban waters,
estuaries, and wetlands. Locally generated pollution, combined with pollution carried by rivers
and streams and through air deposition, can accumulate in these ecosystems and degrade them
over time. The EPA and its federal partners along with states, tribes, municipalities, and private
parties, will continue efforts to restore the integrity of the imperiled waters of the United States.
Governance arrangements must cover all internal agency reporting lines and lines of accountability, including
relevant agency boards or executive committees. For example the ‘sponsor’ may report directly to the agency
head and minister, as well as to an internal agency executive committee, and to external advisory or steering
groups; the project manager may report to the project ‘leader’ or directly to the ‘sponsor’ but may also be
accountable to an ad hoc working group or task force.
