The public is invited to share ideas concerning potential water resources restoration projects at the upcoming Hernando County Task Force meeting.

The meeting is being held Monday, July 2, from 3 5 p.m. at the Weeki Wachee Area Club, 7442 Shoal Line Blvd. in Weeki Wachee.

During the meeting the task force will be considering potential restoration projects to enhance fish and wildlife habitats in Hernando County. Examples of restoration projects may include, but are not limited to, shoreline restoration, sand and sediment control or removal, and exotic species management.

The Hernando County Task Force is part of the Citrus/Hernando Waterways Restoration Council, which was formed by the state Legislature in 2003. The council is responsible for reviewing data related to lake and river restoration techniques, sport-fish population recovery, and sand and sediment control. The task force also submits recommendations to the Legislature in an annual report for funding to address those issues.

For more information, please call Mark Rials at 800-423-1476, ext. 4220 or email your suggestions to Mark.Rials@watermatters.org by July 2.
