Completed Recommendations (Now Defunct)

Public Outreach and Engagement

PO-5
Initiate a regional public education campaign to educate residents, business owners, policy makers on the merits of preserving open land as an ‘insurance policy’ for adaptation to sea level rise in Southeast Florida.

Public Policy Advocacy

PP-10
Encourage federal support for research and investigations of potential energy efficiencies in pumping and water treatment processes necessary for meeting energy reduction goals concurrent with a growing reliance on pumps and advanced treatment technologies for drainage and flood control, water production and wastewater operations.
PP-8
Support and advocate for continued implementation and funding on the state and federal levels for the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan (CERP) in recognition of the important role of CERP in climate adaptation planning and local water resource management related to regional water storage and aquifer recharge, important under variable climate conditions and sea level rise.
PP-9
Advocate to interests in Tallahassee for the preservation of the authority and resource capacity of the Water Management Districts in support of their continued participation in integrated water resource planning, particularly in southeast Florida where climate change and sea level rise pose additional challenges to the complex issues of alternative water supply development, Everglades restoration, salt water abatement, and drainage and flood control operations.
