    WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Congressman Brian Mast (FL), U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (FL), U.S. Senator Rick Scott (FL) and U.S. Congressman Francis Rooney (FL) today released the following joint statement after President Trump’s Fiscal Year budget request to Congress failed to include sufficient funding for Everglades restoration efforts, including the EAA Southern Storage Reservoir.   As you undoubtedly know, the South Florida Water Management Model (SFWMM or 2×2 Model) has no capability to analyze water quality. Output from this model is fed into a separate water quality model. The A-1 and A-2 features are specifically designed as Flow Equalization Basins (FEBs), which are water quality features, not as reservoirs.
