LKGA Advocates for Freshwater to Florida Bay and the Everglades
In late February, Capt. Doug Kilpatrick, Capt. Andrew Tipler, and Capt. Bob Beighley took the opportunity to represent the LKGA at the Army Corps of Engineers meeting in Islamorada. This public meeting was concerning the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) for the Combined Operational Plan (COP).
Capt. Doug Kilpatrick urged the Army Corps of Engineers to increase clean freshwater flow to Florida Bay and the Everglades National Park in the dry season and appealed to prevent hyper salinity in these areas.
