Water Resources Law of 2017 (“Senate Bill 10”), (§373.4598, Fla. Stat.)

Declaring that an emergency exists in the St. Lucie and Caloosahatchee estuaries due to the discharges from Lake Okeechobee, the legislature directs the SFWMD to design and construct a reservoir providing at least 240,000 acre-feet of water storage south of the lake.  The legislation establishes a timeline the SFWMD must meet to implement the project.
