Wekiva Restoration Meeting This Week
The Florida Department of Environmental Protection will host a public meeting on September 2 in Altamonte Springs, FL, to discuss the water quality restoration plan for the Wekiva River, Rock Springs Run and Little Wekiva Canal.
DEP representatives will review the draft restoration plan, or Basin Management Action Plan (BMAP), and take public input prior to finalization and submittal.
“The department is dedicated to achieving real water quality improvements by working alongside stakeholders to craft an effective restoration plan,” said Tom Frick, director of the Division of Environmental Assessment and Restoration. “DEP looks forward to continuing this partnership to improve the water quality of this important watershed.”
In advance of formal adoption of the BMAP, significant restoration efforts have already been made in this basin by the Wekiva Basin Working Group member organizations.
Members have also made commitments for additional projects and programs over the first phase of the BMAP.
