The Florida Department of Environmental Protection will host a meeting today to discuss restoration plans for the Orange Creek Basin, which will include presenting water-quality trends in the basin and providing updates on the plan’s implementation.
The Orange Creek Basin restoration plan covers Newnans Lake, Orange Lake, Lake Wauberg, Hogtown Creek, Sweetwater Branch, Tumblin Creek and Alachua Sink.
“The department has been working closely with local stakeholders to implement a restoration plan that will improve the water quality of Orange Creek Basin,” said Tom Frick, director of the Division of Environmental Assessment and Restoration. “These meetings provide an opportunity to review progress and adapt these long-term plans to new information.”
The Orange Creek Basin Working Group will hold the meeting in Gainesville at the Gainesville Regional Utilities Administration Building.
