Increasing water quality standards are placing even greater demands on water resource managers. Many of California's watersheds have been degraded by intense use. Once pristine meadows have been drained; gullies replace once stable stream systems; sagebrush invades areas once dominated by sedges and willows, and the productivity and biodiversity of fish and wildlife populations have become greatly diminished. Resulting erosion and instability of soils cause many other economic and environmental problems .

The fundamental tenet of south Florida ecosystem restoration is that hydrological restoration is a necessary starting point for ecological restoration. Since water management has in the past adversely affected the ecosystem, water management can be changed to benefit the system. Restoration in this region begins with the reinstatement of the natural distribution of water in space and time. The focus is on the wetlands because the greater part of the pre-drainage south Florida ecosystem was wet.
