Feedback form is now closed.
As red tide occurs in our estuaries and eutrophication is obvious in our Springs, significant mitigation programs are being focused on these problems.  These programs involve the resources of state and local governments to help mitigate these two very visible problems. The panel members will discuss initiatives designed to protect and enhance water quality and quantity in our springs and estuaries. State level programs designed to mitigate the problems while working with regional and local governments will be presented. Speakers from two different water management districts will discuss programs within their District jurisdictions that have been implemented. Local efforts to enhance restoration will be featured by another speaker. Science and engineering background data will also be presented to illustrate the success of programs that limit discharges of nutrients to both ground water and surface waters.
