A Chance to Be Heard About Okeechobee

US Army Corp of Engineers Scoping Meeting
Wednesday, March 20, 2019, 3 p.m. – 5 p.m.
Marathon Government Center
2798 Overseas Highway, BOCC Room (second floor), Marathon, FL 33050
This meeting is being held to consider how the USACE operates Lake Okeechobee.  This specific type of meeting has never happened before in the Keys.  The last meetings they had were in 2005 in Stuart, Ft. Myers, Clewiston, and Okeechobee.
This meeting is our chance to ask the USACE to maximize flows to Florida Bay in the wet season.  We do not have to wait for more infrastructure to be paid for and built to make the Bay more resilient.  All we have to do is increase the amount of water we send it during the dry season.
Both  LKFGA & FKFGA are making an effort to have as many bodies in the room as possible.

Please show up so we can stand together on the 20th in Marathon.
