Join Miami Waterkeeper for our third annual State of the Water address. This free, virtual event will convene community leaders to provide a full and fact-based overview of the major issues facing our watershed and solutions for the coming year. At the State of the Water, Miami Waterkeeper, Dr. Rachel Silverstein, will provide an overview of the year’s top water quality issues. Special guests and elected officials (TBD) will also give remarks.
Clean water is what makes Miami, Miami. Yet our water resources are continually threatened by pollution. Representing our region's core economic drivers and generating over $12.7 billion annually, Biscayne Bay and the associated waterways represent a vital part of South Florida’s economy.
We are also proud to award the second annual Porter Prize to a member of the community who has gone above and beyond in service to the environment. This year’s recipient will be Paul Schwiep, Miami Waterkeeper outside counsel and partner of the law firm Coffey Burlington
