Alico Water Resources’ 35,000 Hendry County land is strategically located for this dispersed water storage project, the largest and most cost-effective project of its kind in the United States. The goal is simple with numerous benefits:
Retains large volumes of water from the Caloosahatchee River and prevents local runoff from entering the watershed.
Rehydrates natural systems that eventually flow south into the Everglades.
Preserves ranch and farmland from future development and urban sprawl.
Taxpayers benefit – five times as cost-effective as other public projects and land remains in tax base of the local community.
