WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - The South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) has joined with the Florida Department of Environmental (DEP) protection and several local governments to form a working group to address a crucial component of restoring America's Everglades.
The District has also initiated the C-43 Water Quality Study. The study will evaluate the most technically-feasible and cost-effective methods to reduce the discharge of harmful nutrients from the Caloosahatchee (C-43) West Basin Storage Reservoir, which is currently under construction. Reducing the discharge of nutrients will improve the quality of water released from that reservoir when it is completed.
