Eric Eikenberg Response to Fernandez Statement on Water Management District’s Post-Election Day Doublecross of Florida Citizens
“With no prior notice, the Water Management District has today walled off the site of the intended Everglades Reservoir for the benefit of Florida Crystals.
“Far from allowing ‘immediate reservoir site work to proceed,’ Mr. Fernandez has signed away any possibility of performing site preparation or construction work on 16,158 acres of taxpayer-owned property until April 1, 2021 at the earliest.
“The people need immediate relief from the conditions causing perennial toxic algae blooms that are killing Floridians and destroying our economy. We need access to this acreage for site preparation and construction – now, not two years from now.”
