Attempt to Delay Implementation of 2008 Ocean Outfall Legislation Fails

State legislation was passed in 2008 to close 6 ocean outfalls along the Florida Atlantic coastline to help preserve the reef ecosystem and begin to reuse the freshwater to help with water shortages. The original timeline was to have the outfalls be completely closed and in full reuse mode by 2025. Bill SB 796, which sought to extend that deadline, was never brought up for a vote and died as the 2010-2011 Florida legislative session came to an end.
