Florida Chamber of Commerce Water Education Video Highlights Water North of Lake Okeechobee

The Florida Chamber of Commerce released the latest in a series of educational water videos which points to 97 percent of water going into Lake Okeechobee coming from north of the lake – Kissimmee, and most of the contaminated water originating on the northwest side. The just-released coral research, and the Florida Chamber’s 11th in a series of educational water videos, were led by top FAU-Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute Research Professor Dr. Brian Lapointe.

“When it comes to securing Florida’s future, there are few issues more important than water,” said Mark Wilson President and CEO of the Florida Chamber. “With 4.5 million more people  expected to call Florida home by 2030, science-based data is key to meeting the challenges Florida faces.”

The video also features water and environmental leaders:
