Florida House should not water down reservoir plan | Editorial

The Florida House will hold its first committee vote Monday on the most important environment bill of the legislative session. Ideally, the House will make no changes to the Senate bill.

SB 10 would create a reservoir south of Lake Okeechobee that would divert excess lake water from coastal estuaries and direct it where the water could help to replenish the Everglades. Along with that twofold environmental benefit would come the economic benefit of helping industries — boating, sport fishing, real estate — that depend on clean estuaries and a healthy Everglades.
