Restoration Plan Introduced for Orange Creek Basin (USA)

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection has adopted a long-term restoration plan for Orange Creek basin.

The restoration plan, known as a basin management action plan or BMAP, identifies strategies and projects that will be implemented by the department in conjunction with local governments over the next five years to improve the water quality of the Orange Creek basin.

“During the first phase of this restoration plan we have seen improvements in the health of these waterbodies,” said Tom Frick, director of the Division of Environmental Assessment and Restoration. “The second phase of this BMAP will supplement the initial restoration strategies with the implementation of new projects developed with knowledge obtained during the past few years.”

The original restoration plan was adopted in 2008 and thanks to the efforts of local governments, St. Johns River Water Management District (SJRWMD), Department of Health (DOH), Department of Transportation (DOT) and Gainesville Regional Utilities (GRU), substantial progress has been made.
