PROVIDES YOUR DRINKING WATER!
South Florida’s economic engines tourism, real estate, fishing, and recreation all depend on clean water.
South Florida’s world-renowned biodiversity depends on a healthy Everglades.
A healthy Everglades depends on water
from Lake Okeechobee.
Sending water to the Everglades will protect the Caloosahatchee and St. Lucie estuaries and communities from harmful releases of polluted water from Lake Okeechobee.
Year -round freshwater keeps the Everglades ecosystem healthy. If the Everglades does not get the water it needs, it is subject to soil loss and devastating wildfires.
The Everglades Foundation
is the leading voice on restoring and protecting the Everglades.
