It’s been a big year for clean water in Florida and for the future of discharges from Lake Okeechobee thanks to our friends at Captains for Clean Water. After Florida and the Army Corp of Engineers released their latest LOSOM plan, a palpable sigh of relief was felt as progress was made in favor of clean water in Florida flowing out of Lake Okeechobee.

From Captains for Clean Water:
“This year, we witnessed an outcome for the future Lake Okeechobee operations plan (LOSOM) that puts us in a position to see REAL PROGRESS for our waters.
It was a moment three years in the making, but the positive result was anything but guaranteed. We rallied local businesses, other organizations, the outdoor industry, state officials, and of course, the people to ensure that the new plan would be good for our waters.
Our engaged community stepped up time and time again, and now we have a very promising tomorrow to celebrate.
Check out our full impact report to see how—with your support—we were able to move the needle in a major way over the past year.”
