West is best for stormwater flow

Published 2009 Sep 04 - Hometown News
An estimated $20 million stormwater diversion project that continues taking shape west of the city is expected to lead to cleaner waterways and better wildlife habitats.

The system will involve the 2,250-acre Sawgrass Lake Water Management Area and a new, 1,800-acre reservoir nearby. In these areas, wetland vegetation will help filter nutrients and suspended solids from the diverted stormwater. The cleaner water then will be sent on to the St. Johns River.
