Last month marked a major legislative victory for Everglades restoration, the culmination of the hard work of many lawmakers, individuals, companies and organizations. Still, there is much work to be done, and we need to keep the pressure on to ensure that the legislation - calling for building a reservoir south of Lake Okeechobee to store, clean and convey freshwater - becomes a reality.
Below is a timeline of important milestones to ensure Senate Bill 10 is implemented in a timely manner and the reservoir is built.
We have won a major victory, but now is not the time for complacency. Thank you for helping us keep the pressure on to ensure a brighter future for the Florida Everglades.
