Be HEARD at Lk O Watershed Public Mtg

July 26, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

* Public Scoping Mtg for the Lake O Watershed Project by USACE/ SFWMD *

Let’s demand the start NOW for planning of storage, treatment and movement of water south of Lake Okeechobee in the EAA. We need EAA planning NOW, not in 2020.

WHAT? WHY?
A public mtg for plans to store water ONLY north of Lake Okeechobee. Scientific studies tell us that to truly restore the Everglades we MUST address the water issues north and south of Lake Okeechobee. Plans for comprehensive and long-term solutions must also include south of the Lake, in the EAA. Come to hear current plans and to demand for SFWMD and USACE to also start NOW the planning of storage, treatment and movement of water south of Lake Okeechobee in the EAA. We need EAA planning NOW, not in 2020.

Let’s ask for long-term solutions, not just short-term relief, to address the water issues affecting people and wildlife in our coastal communities, the EAA, the Everglades National Park and Florida Bay.

WHO should Attend?
Concerned citizens who live, work or visit on the St. Lucie and Caloosahatchee Rivers and Estuaries, the Indian River Lagoon, the Lake Worth Lagoon, Palm Beach county beaches, and Florida Bay that want long-term solutions to the on-going and worsening water issues that affect not just South Florida, but all of Florida.

WHERE?
SFWMD Okeechobee Service Center
3800 NW 16th Boulevard, Suite A
Okeechobee, FL 34972
