Meeting on Everglades West Coast Basin
The Florida Department of Environmental Protection will hold a meeting on June 16 to discuss water quality restoration for the Everglades West Coast Basin.
Representatives will review current and potential future monitoring efforts and provide updates on ongoing restoration activities.
“Department staff and stakeholders have invested significant time and effort into the restoration of this basin,” said Tom Frick, director of the Division of Environmental Assessment and Restoration. “We want to keep the lines of communication open as we continue to return these waters to health.”
The Everglades West Coast Basin restoration plan focuses on two waterbodies in this basin – Hendry Creek and Imperial River.
The Hendry Creek watershed is located in southwest Lee County. The Imperial River watershed is also located in Lee County and within the city of Bonita Springs.
