There is no question that insufficient and outdated water management priorities have led us to a human health crisis.
Holding Lake Okeechobee water levels too high before the rainy season last year resulted in the emergency discharge of 392 billion gallons of toxic water into the St. Lucie and Caloosahatchee, leaving behind a rash of health concerns and unanswered questions. (The Army Corps admitted they were betting on a dry weather forecast. We all lost that bet.)
Who would lobby to solve a problem s-l-o-w-e-r?
By changing the operational priorities for Lake Okeechobee’s management, we could be on the brink of an amazing shift in water policy with the potential to transform South Florida forever... right NOW... at virtually no cost to taxpayers. Shouldn’t we welcome that opportunity?
