Homeowners in South Venice have long touted water quality as a top neighborhood issue and they recently celebrated a project that will create additional habitat and help improve water quality in their local waterways.
Residents and other community leaders celebrated the South Venice Beach Waterway Restoration Project, a culmination of the work to restore about 7,500 linear feet of the Siesta and Briarwood waterway banks in South Venice Beach. By creating a healthier drainage system, the project will improve the quality of the water entering Alligator Creek and Lemon Bay.
