West Palm Beach, FL – The South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) prides itself on following the science to get the water right. As evidence of that, SFWMD staff briefed the public and Water Resources Analysis Coalition during its January meeting on its efforts to update a Science Plan that is a crucial component of Gov. Rick Scott's Restoration Strategies Plan to restore the water quality of the Everglades.
"Our latest data shows that Gov. Scott's plan is working, as the District's efforts have yielded tremendous improvements to Everglades water quality," said SFWMD Governing Board Chairman Dan O'Keefe. "Restoration Strategies was built on sound science, and these results are proof. By updating the research projects laid out in this Science Plan, the SFWMD is keeping Restoration Strategies current and on the right path to further progress."
