Gov. DeSantis marks major Everglades restoration effort

by The 100 Companies

Gov. Ron DeSantis celebrated filling the first of three cells at a 6,500-acre stormwater treatment zone in the Everglades Agricultural Area (EAA), which will store and clean Lake Okeechobee water to send south.

He called it the “largest and most significant restoration effort” in the nation and a “huge step” toward restoring South Florida’s freshwater.

“The EAA Reservoir is the crown jewel of Everglades restoration,” he said at a Thursday ribbon-cutting in Palm Beach.

The project, launched in April 2020, is a year ahead of schedule, according to DeSantis’ administration, which expects the remaining cells to come online by summer.
