An Independent Review
The Everglades Foundation published an independent review of the EAA Reservoir last week.
The most alarming part of the report for those of us focusing on the Florida Bay, is the analysis of whether the water that will be sent south will be clean enough to meet the Water Quality Based Effluent Limit (WQBEL) before entering the Park. The Foundation suggests that more land is needed for treatment to clean the water sufficiently. And we know that more land is an unlikely scenario.
Sugar Pays for Clean Up?
This novel idea comes from Mark Perry, director of the Florida Oceanographic Society.
And yet how novel is it? Why should tax payers be footing the bill to clean polluted ag water?
Set Up for Failure?
The Naples Daily News Editorial Board questions whether the current path to completing the EAA Reservoir is setting us up for failure.
Their question is valid. Should we settle for a project that promises only meager benefits?
