West Palm Beach, FL – The South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) will be hosting a public meeting on the Lake Okeechobee Watershed Restoration Project at 10 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 6, in Okeechobee.
Friday's meeting is a question and answer forum for landowners in the project's potential footprint. As the SFWMD and its federal partner, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, narrow down the tentative project plan components and locations, the purpose of this event is to explain how the land acquisition process works, provide a timeline of pertinent milestones and answer landowners' questions.
Landowners were previously notified by mail and invited to participate and provide input at this public forum.
