Shingle Creek

This upcoming week, we are discussing one of the most important water bodies in Orange County, Shingle Creek. You may know Shingle Creek as the Headwaters of the Everglades, from the 528 sign near International Drive. Shingle Creek serves as our quintessential drainage basin in major rain events, water treatment before it touches the Everglades, aquifer recharge to refill your water cup, carbon sink for emissions, and so much more. On Tuesday, the Board will be discussing ways to protect Shingle Creek in perpetuity. I hope to see you there at 9am.
