We were thrilled to receive the Florida Department of Environmental Protections ‘2023 Environmental Stewardship’ award from Jason Andreotta, Assistant Deputy Secretory of Regulatory Programs for Florida DEP.
For the past year, I we have shown up at dozens of meetings and conferences to raise awareness for the need for more stringent regulations on stormwater design and maintenance as a way to reduce the amount of plastic debris and nutrients that make their way out to our waterways. This persistent advocacy has led to significant new requirements in the upcoming MS4 Stormwater Permits that will affect all municipalities across the state.!. Kudos to Florida DEP for listening.!.
Rule #1 – Always show up
Rule #2 – Never go away
