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.
