Statement From DEP Secretary Herschel T. Vinyard Jr. Regarding Water Management District Support of the Indian River Lagoon

Sept. 16, 2014

“I commend the Governing Board Members of the St. Johns River and the South Florida Water Management Districts for their commitment to provide technical assistance and significant funding to support the Indian River Lagoon National Estuary Program.

“The Indian River Lagoon is one of the most unique and treasured ecosystems in the world and it deserves our protection. No one knows that better than the thousands of area residents who are fighting to restore the health of the lagoon each and every day, many through the Indian River Lagoon National Estuary Program. These local stakeholders need our support and I’m confident they will put these state and regional resources to good use on behalf of lagoon restoration.”
