All Aboard Florida’s efforts to clear a needed environmental permit from challenges won another victory Thursday as the South Florida Water Management District rejected final challenges brought by the private passenger train developer’s critics along the Treasure Coast, reports Florida Politics.

The water district denied 17 exceptions filed by Martin and St. Lucie counties and entered a final order to issue an environmental resource permit to Brightline, All Aboard Florida’s train system.

The district also adopted the recommended order of a Florida administrative law judge which earlier had denied the counties’ initial challenge to the permit.
