From WFLA: A plan to build reservoirs south of Florida’s Lake Okeechobee to treat polluted water before it flows downstream is now law.

Republican Gov. Rick Scott signed the bill on Tuesday, which was a top priority for Senate President Joe Negron (R-Stuart).

The bill dealing with Lake Okeechobee will help address the problem of nutrients in the water that create algae blooms in some Florida rivers and estuaries.
