Florida’s continued economic prosperity and quality of life depends on water quality. Our springs, rivers, lakes and tidal waters at our beaches must be clean. Our amazing natural resources of the Everglades and Lake Okeechobee must be protected. Water quality and environmental protection are our top policy priorities. We can never lose sight of the fact that clean Florida water is at the core of our food supply, economic activity, and recreation.
Briefing held to discuss Midnight Pass re-opening
SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) – Rep. Greg Steube and Sarasota County leaders held a virtual briefing on Thursday, March 30, to discuss the status and steps needed to re-open Midnight Pass in Sarasota County.
Prior to 1984 Little Sarasota Bay was open to the Gulf of Mexico. The opening pass seperated Casey Key and Siesta Key. It was known as Midnight Pass and it allowed fresh ocean water to flow freely into Little Sarasota Bay, flushing out debris and maintaining a healthy ecosystem.
