I used to see Dolphins in the Lagoon all the time a few months back... now they're all gone..

Is it because the fish are all gone because the sea grass is dying?

Maybe. Would you want to swim in that estuary? Contact Mark Perry at the Florida Oceanographic Center and see what you can do to help fix the situation.

EAA Reservoir Project (SB 10): 90 Days In

It looks like the project is making progress. Everything has been moving forward according to schedule, with the exception of the US Army Corps of Engineers who requested 30 additional days to begin the post-authorization report.

See the Approved Bill (SB 10)
See the SFWMD's Webpage


Plans to be Presented on August 16th for Lake Okeechobee Watershed Project


We’re a year into the planning phase of the Watershed Project. The SFWMD and US Army Corp of Engineers are developing 3 alternatives to be presented August 16, 2017. These plans will be to store and treat water before entering Lake Okeechobee. Once completed, this project will store 47% of the Lake’s regulatory releases according to the District modeling.


SB 10 Signed by Gov. Scott

Governor Rick Scott has signed Senate Bill 10, the plan to build a water storage reservoir south of Lake Okeechobee. This is a step in the right direction for restoring the Everglades and stopping the harmful discharges into our local waterways. This plan provides a timeline to SFWMD & USACOE to complete planning in 3 years, funding FY 2018 $30 M for acquiring land and leases, and $3M to develop post-authorization change reports. Also includes up to $800 M in Florida Forever Bonding for land, planning and construction, and $64 M in FY 2019 for EAA Reservoir Project.


SB 10 Approved By Senate – Off to House

The Senate has approved Senate Bill 10 to build a reservoir south of Lake Okeechobee to store and clean water that will be sent south to the Everglades. The bill is now in the House of Representatives to be approved. We urge you to reach out to House Speaker Richard Corcoran to show your support of SB 10.
