Under the $200 million recovery plan, the State is expanding water storage areas, constructing treatment marshes and expediting environmental management initiatives to enhance the ecological health of the lake and downstream coastal estuaries."

Since 2000, Florida has invested more than $70 million to improve farming practices, construct wetlands and implement phosphorus reduction technologies to improve the health of America's second largest freshwater lake."
