C-51 Reservoir Groundbreaking


A regional collaboration broke ground on the first phase of the C-51 Reservoir to provide an alternate water supply source for Eight public water utilities in South Florida. When complete, it will serve the region by storing excess wet-season stormwater for later use during the dry-seasons to recharge the Biscayne Aquifer, the primary source of drinking water in South Florida, and enhance flood protection, water quality, and combat saltwater intrusion. A 15-year collaboration with regional stakeholders has brought this innovative project to fruition, helping South Florida achieve a sustainable water supply for our growing population. Great vision equals great success!
