The SFWMD Completes the River of Grass Planning Process

The SFWMD completes its study of the amount of storage needed to reduce the discharges to the Caloosahatchee and St. Lucie estuaries and to move more water south.  The SFWMD concludes that approximately 1 million acre feet of storage is needed to reduce the discharges by 90% and provide approximately 350,000 acre feet of additional flow to the Everglades each year.
