University of Florida Water Institute Completes Technical Review

In 2014, the Florida Senate authorized an independent technical review of the options to reduce the discharges into the coastal estuaries and move more water into the Everglades. The report identifies the need for 400,000 acre-feet of storage within the Caloosahatchee River watershed, 200,000 acre-feet of storage within the St. Lucie River watershed, and approximately 1 million acre-feet north and south of Lake Okeechobee.
