KEY BISCAYNE, FLORIDA — Today, Governor Ron DeSantis awarded $22.7 million to fund water quality projects in South Florida, including $14.5 million for Miami-Dade County.
“Biscayne Bay is an important resource for the state of Florida,” DeSantis said at a press conference in Key Biscayne. “It’s the largest estuary in our state and the largest passenger port in the world.”
“Governor DeSantis understands that Florida’s economy runs on water. Funding critical water quality and restoration projects is not only good for the environment, it’s also good for our economy,” Anna Upton, CEO of the Everglades Trust told The Florida Standard.
