Note: The 2009 U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Headquarters policy requiring adaptive management for ecosystem restoration projects was introduced in 2009, and the CERP Adaptive Management Integration Guide was released in 2011.
†Project had some adaptive management features even if it did not have an adaptive management plan.
‡Project has not been authorized Federally, but has been implemented by the state of Florida.
