The Martin County Board of County Commissioners asks for your support as we “Speak Up for the St. Lucie.” In Martin County, our waterways are central to our community’s way of life. The Indian River Lagoon and St. Lucie Estuary have long suffered from degraded water quality due to freshwater releases from Lake Okeechobee and stormwater runoff. This poor water quality continues to negatively impact our overall quality of life and our local economy, much of which is dependent on a viable coastal ecosystem.
The Martin County Board of County Commissioners is committed to advocating on behalf of our waterways to mitigate the negative impacts of freshwater releases and runoff on our estuary. We cannot do this important work alone. Join the Board of County Commissioners and the citizens of Martin County as we continue to lead the way in the protection of our waterways and “Speak Up for the St. Lucie.”
