FDEP to Continue Evaluation of Lake Okeechobee Restoration Issues

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) yesterday convened local stakeholders, government representatives, scientists, environmentalists, agricultural operators and others, to continue development of the Lake Okeechobee restoration plan.

The Lake Okeechobee restoration plan is one of the most complicated we have undertaken,” said Tom Frick, director of the Division of Environmental Assessment and Restoration. “It is imperative we bring stakeholders together regularly to learn about the issues, develop restoration project options and link this effort with other ongoing Lake Okeechobee protection programs.”

This meeting is another in a series of monthly gatherings to establish the specific pollutant load reductions and action strategies essential to improving lake water quality.
