Water is our most precious natural resource, and we need to take smart, science-based steps to solve our water supply and quality challenges. Cleaning waterways from the Everglades to Lake Okeechobee to the Indian River and our springs is an important priority for Florida’s future, as is ensuring a clean, abundant supply of fresh water to meet our personal and commercial needs. Working together with all stakeholders, from the agriculture community to governments to environmental groups, science-based solutions that balance the needs of our environment and our communities to keep our waterways clean and healthy for future generations can be achieved.
