Joe Negron: Major Expansion of Southern Water Storage Becomes Law

Categories: Blog

Today Florida Governor Rick Scott signed Senate Bill 10, Water Resources, by Senator Rob Bradley (R-Fleming Island). The legislation authorizes a significant increase in southern water storage to further the goal of reducing and eventually eliminating harmful discharges from Lake Okeechobee, a priority of Senate President Joe Negron (R-Stuart).

“After twenty years of talking, southern storage is finally becoming a reality,” said President Negron. “We are well on our way to putting the harmful discharges from Lake Okeechobee into the pages of history, instead of the front pages of daily newspapers.”
