Don't let sugar go back on their word

Enormous amounts of water are shunted from Lake Okeechobee to the east and west each year through the St. Lucie and Caloosahatchee Rivers, instead of to the south where it historically flowed and belongs.

The C-43 Reservoir is vital to stemming some of these flows, as well as holding water to provide back to the Caloosahatchee River during the dry season, when the river and estuary suffer from too little flows.

However, to stop the harmfully high discharges that are destroying the Caloosahatchee and St. Lucie rivers and estuaries, more land south of Lake Okeechobee is needed to provide an alternate path and place to store this water.
