FORT MYERS — The Florida Department of Environmental Protection recently announced adoption of two Basin Management Action Plans in Southwest Florida, one for Hendry Creek and the Imperial River and the other for the Caloosahatchee River. Department Secretary Herschel Vinyard joined city and county officials at the celebration to kick off implementation of these critical water quality cleanup plans.
“One of DEP’s top priorities is getting Florida’s water right, ensuring an adequate supply and improving water quality,” said Secretary Vinyard. “The DEP is focused on achieving measurable ecological progress through restoration programs all across the state. We will continue to partner with local stakeholders as we take collective, immediate action to restore the rivers, lakes and estuaries that give Florida so much of its unique character.”
