The South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) held its monthly Governing Board meeting last month in Fort Myers and received an update on water resource projects to benefit the Caloosahatchee River and Estuary.
The public meeting is part of a practice to conduct District business away from West Palm Beach headquarters several times a year, giving local residents increased opportunities to interact with the Board.
As part of the public meeting, SFWMD staff provided an update on key projects that are currently operating or underway to benefit the region. Together, the projects are aimed at improving water quality and water storage throughout the Caloosahatchee basin, which will improve conditions in the coastal estuary as well.
