Statement From DEP Secretary Herschel T. Vinyard Jr. Regarding District Progress on Major St. Lucie Estuary Project

Sept. 16, 2014

“Today, the Governing Board Members of the South Florida Water Management District demonstrated, once again, their unwavering commitment to getting the water right in south Florida. With their vote to begin construction on the much-anticipated C-44 Stormwater Treatment Area, the residents of Martin and St. Lucie counties can rest assured that the region is on track to store and treat the freshwater flows that have been so damaging to the St. Lucie River and Estuary.

“We’re grateful for Governor Scott’s support as we continue to work with local, district and federal partners to make this massive and complex project a reality.”
