Kissimmee River Restoration VIDEO: Securing Florida’s Water Future

The Florida Chamber of Commerce has just released a video named ‘Securing Florida’s Water Future: Kissimmee River’, the latest in a series of water education videos that demonstrate the importance of following science-based research solutions.

‘Securing Florida’s Water Future: Kissimmee River’ features research produced by Florida Atlantic University – Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute Research Professor Dr. Brian LaPointe.

The Kissimmee River restoration project, authorized by Congress in 1992, is sponsored by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD).

When the project is completed in 2020, more than 40 square miles of river-floodplain ecosystem will be restored, including nearly 20,000 acres of wetlands and 44 miles of historic river channel.

The Kissimmee River basin extends south from Orlando to Lake Okeechobee and encompasses thousands of square miles.
