Stakeholders Provide Update on St. Johns River Restoration Plans (USA)

Florida Department of Environmental Protection staff met with local stakeholders to discuss annual progress on the restoration plans for 25 tributaries in the Lower St. Johns River basin.

The Department, along with the Florida Department of Transportation, City of Jacksonville, JEA, Duval County Health Department, CIty of Atlantic Beach, City of Jacksonville Beach, City of Neptune Beach, and Naval Station Mayport reviewed updates on water quality trends, project successes and future direction.

Local stakeholders have made significant investments in restoration projects in this basin, and we are seeing results,” said Tom Frick, Director of the Division of Environmental Assessment and Restoration. “But the job isn’t finished and the Department and every other stakeholder must remain committed to ensuring that full restoration is achieved.”

Florida Department of Environmental Protection adopted two separate restoration plans, called Basin Management Action Plans, which identified water quality projects, funding resources and an implementation schedule necessary to bring the tributaries in the watershed back to health.
