DEP Advances Upper Ocklawaha Basin Scheme

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection is hosting its annual public meeting on September 10 to review water-quality restoration progress for the Harris Chain of Lakes and Lake Apopka, as well as further the water-quality restoration of five priority water bodies in the Upper Ocklawaha Basin.

These water bodies are Lake Harris, Palatlakaha River, Trout Lake, Lake Yale and Lake Carlton.

The expertise provided by stakeholders and scientists is crucial to the restoration process,” said Tom Frick, director of the Division of Environmental Assessment and Restoration. “Combining the research with first-hand knowledge allows us to identify the most targeted and efficient path toward restoration.”

In 2014 DEP adopted the second phase of a long-term restoration plan for the Upper Ocklawaha River.

The restoration plan, known as a basin management action plan or BMAP, identifies strategies and projects that will be implemented over the next five years in order to improve the water quality of the upper basin.
