Residents protesting Army Corps after delayed action on Everglades plan

Protest being held in Royal Palm Beach Wednesday

ROYAL PALM BEACH, Fla. - A protest is being held in Royal Palm Beach Wednesday morning in an effort to restore the Everglades and nearby estuaries.

Protesters hope this will send a message to the Army Corps of Engineers, which recently delayed a plan that would improve the water quality discharged into the Indian River Lagoon.

The protest starts at 11 a.m. at the Royal Palm Beach Cultural Center on Civic Center Way.  During the protest, the Everglades Restoration Task Force will be meeting from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
