Progress Continues On Everglades Reservoir Project With Approval From State Water Managers

Blue-green algae in Palm Beach County. State water managers are in the midst of planning a reservoir that would reduce discharges of contaminated water from Lake Okeechobee, which can worsen algae blooms.

The South Florida Water Management District announced Thursday that its board has approved handing off a design for a water storage reservoir south of Lake Okeechobee to its federal partner.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will now begin reviewing the tentatively selected reservoir plan which, in conjunction with a state restoration strategies plan, provides 350,000 acre-feet of above-ground storage.
