 The South Florida Water Management District's (SFWMD) Governing Board is encouraging the public to attend the agency's workshop on Wednesday, July 10, 1 p.m.-5 p.m. The workshop, which will be held at SFWMD Headquarters at 3301 Gun Club Road in West Palm Beach, will be open to the public and broadcast on sfwmd.gov.

Wednesday's workshop agenda will focus on the ecological status and water quality conditions of the St. Lucie and Caloosahatchee Estuaries and watersheds, as major components of the Northern Estuaries Protection Program. The workshop will also review the programs and projects that are designed to improve the condition and function of these estuaries. Members of the public are encouraged to attend and provide public comment. The workshop session is informative in nature and no decisions will be made by the Governing Board.

The workshop is part of a series of workshops the Governing Board plans to hold as part of the District's ongoing efforts to explore all facets of the region's water resource issues and encourage public participation.
