Water for America’s Everglades

Fact Sheet (1.78 MB)

Florida’s waters are in crisis. Everglades National Park and Florida Bay are starved for freshwater, while the northern Caloosahatchee River and St. Lucie River are inundated with polluted Lake Okeechobee discharges. The solution to this crisis is to send clean water south to the Everglades, restoring some of the historic “River of Grass” that once dominated this unique ecosystem.

NPCA supports Florida Sen. Rob Bradley’s plan to buy land south of Lake Okeechobee to store, treat, and flow clean water to Everglades National Park, outlined in SB10.
