Meeting on Lake Okeechobee Restoration

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection will host a technical meeting on July 1 to discuss the Lake Okeechobee restoration plan.

The restoration plan, known as a basin management action plan or BMAP, was adopted late last year and identifies strategies and projects to return the lake to health.

The department and stakeholders invested considerable effort into the development of this BMAP,” said Tom Frick, director of the Division of Environmental Assessment and Restoration. “But our work is not over. These meetings are part of our ongoing commitment to restoration as we continue to work alongside stakeholders for the benefit of the basin.”

Since the adoption of the restoration plan, the department has held regular update meetings to keep stakeholders and the public informed of progress and to solicit feedback on future restoration activities going forward.

Representatives will provide updates on the watershed model and ongoing projects as well as review information concerning monitoring data and land use.
