A statement from Danielle Alvarez, spokesperson for EAA Farmers, Inc., following the passage of SB10 during the Senate Appropriations Committee:

“Today’s amendment acknowledges what EAA farmers have said all along: a storage reservoir south of Lake Okeechobee can be accomplished within the existing footprint of state-owned lands without the need to acquire additional farmland. However, an EAA reservoir will not solve the problems in the coastal estuaries. We will continue to work with lawmakers to implement real solutions for the coastal estuaries, such as the repair of the Herbert Hoover Dike, north of Lake Okeechobee storage, projects to address local basin run-off and aging septic tank conversions.”
