The South Florida Water Management District voted to terminate the US Sugar land deal, ending our best option for saving our drinking water and putting an end to toxic blooms that close beaches, kill wildlife and devastate our local economies.
Over 200 scientists and the country's leading water experts all agree that water storage south of Lake Okeechobee is critical to save our drinking water, put an end to toxic blooms that devastate our economy and protect the Everglades for future generations. Coming up with a new plan to buy land south of Lake Okeechobee where water can be stored and cleaned is the only option for a long term solution.
It’s time for the legislature to stand up, use the funds we set aside when 75% of Florida voted to amend the Constitution and formulate and fund a long term plan for water storage south of Lake Okeechobee.
I add my name to the millions of Floridians who voted last November to save our drinking water and the Everglades. We demand a plan to save our water.
