JOIN US: Get Ready to Speak Up For Our Community

Scores of Treasure Coast residents have already gone on record. Now it’s your turn.

The Army Corps of Engineers is offering opportunities all across the state to residents, visitors, and anyone else who holds places in Florida close to their hearts to help reshape the future of Florida’s water. They’re headed to Stuart on Tuesday, February 19th to conduct scoping hearings for how they manage Lake Okeechobee for the first time since 2005.

To understand what to expect and how to prepare, please join Bullsugar with Congressman Brian Mast and representatives from the Center for Biological Diversity this coming Saturday, February 16th, for a community briefing on the upcoming scoping hearing.


The Lake Okeechobee System Operating Manual (LOSOM) Scoping hearings are a chance to tell the stories of how toxic discharges have impacted your life, your health, your business, and the reasons that you believe these waters are worth fighting for. We want to help you make the most of your chance to participate.

WHAT: A community briefing with Bullsugar, Congressman Brian Mast, and Center for Biological Diversity 

WHEN: Saturday, February 16th from 10 – 11:30am

WHERE: City of Stuart City Hall – 121 SW Flagler Ave. Stuart, FL 34994

Change won’t occur without our community’s participation. Your input at these hearings will impact all of South Florida and the Greater Everglades ecosystem. Let’s make the next set of regulations work for all of it and all of us.

We look forward to seeing you all there!
