West Palm Beach, FL - South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) staff will present an update to its Project & Lands Committee on two specific cattle grazing leases:
SFWMD's leasing program assists in managing lands acquired for water management purposes or for ecosystem restoration prior to project implementation. Lease holders temporarily keep public lands in production, pay taxes and local assessments, control exotic vegetation and implement agricultural Best Management Practices for water quality improvements. Revenues generated by the leases are used to support land management activities throughout the District.
