Brighton Valley Northern Everglades Water Project Breaks Ground
New public-private partnership will keep thousands of acre-feet of stormwater runoff out of the estuaries.
A public-private partnership project between Lykes Brighton Valley LLC, the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD), Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS) and Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) is officially breaking ground and starting construction on the Brighton Valley Northern Everglades Public Private Partnership Project. This project will treat water in the Lake Okeechobee watershed over the next decade.
"Every gallon stored counts to help alleviate high water conditions in South Florida," said SFWMD Governing Board member Brandon Tucker. "This Governing Board is thankful to Lykes Brighton Valley for stepping up and helping reduce nutrients in the Lake Okeechobee watershed."
