Video is up: August meeting of the Governing Board of the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD).

[NOTE: This blog post was posted on August 13th. Reading this will give you a good idea what to expect next month following the September Governing Board meeting which will include the the updates, guidance and information from WRAC (see below) on Sept. 6th.]

The link to the video is below of the previous SFWMD Governing Board meeting held on August 9th at the headquarters in suburban West Palm Beach. First, this is very important:

Note that beneath the video of this SFWMD meeting is the actual agenda and within that agenda are links to specific agenda items. For example, when you scroll down to agenda Item 19 and click on “Technical Reports” you will go directly to that point in the video and watch the latest updates from the SFWMD Executive Management team consisting of Chief District Engineer John Mitnik, P.E., Water Resources Director Terri Bates, et al.

The meeting officially begins at the two-minute mark. Click on this link to begin watching from the start.

At several points during this meeting of the Governing Board the role of the press and news media was discussed and specifically how little news is reported about successful and ongoing projects to move clean water south and all the work to protect the environment.

One item in particular that stands out here in Palm Beach County is Item 23 in the video, the “Loxahatchee River Watershed Restoration Project Update”.

And Item 19B is the “Ecological Conditions Report” by Dir. Terri Bates (see image below).

FYI: The next meeting of the Water Resources Analysis Coalition (WRAC) is on September 6th. The next regularly scheduled SFWMD Governing Board meeting is on September 13th. Both meetings begin at 9:00 a.m. and are held at SFWMD headquarters located at 3301 Gun Club Rd. in suburban West Palm Beach.
