Kissimmee Restoration

Kissimmee River Restoration has positive impact on the estuaries

With improving conditions during the Kissimmee River Restoration, there is an increased inflow of freshwater to Lake Okeechobee. This increased flow allows for four times the growth of non-invasive aquatic vegetation in 2019, and the vegetation is predicted to keep growing to benefit the St. Lucie and Caloosahatchee estuary freshwater flow.
