THE FUTURE

WE ARE COMMITTED TO WATER QUALITY ADVANCEMENTS

 

WE WILL BUILD ON THE ADVANCEMENTS WE HAVE MADE

Historically, the responsibility to select the best technologies to protect waterbodies has been left to government agencies, or individual companies working on local problems. There have been efforts to remove excess phosphorus from water, both at the source and downstream. Neither has produced the large-scale, cost-effective innovative solutions the world so desperately needs to solve our global freshwater crisis.

 

Today, The Everglades Foundation remains committed to advancing clean water solutions, and plans to build on the success of the George Barley Water Prize. 

 

The  Foundation is poised to work with the State of Florida to help advance clean water innovation and tackle Florida’s algae blooms and water quality issues. 

 
 

A NATIONAL SEARCH FOR CLEAN WATER SOLUTIONS

Phosphorus pollution continues to plague the Everglades and freshwater bodies throughout the world. In the United States alone, 15,000 water bodies are in peril, and many states and municipalities have taken it upon themselves to tackle the issue.
