What to do when your citrus grove is devastated by citrus greening?  One citrus grove owner in Palm City, FL, found an alternate use for his land. The owner was originally going to turn the land into “ranchettes” but an offer from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection encouraged them to instead turn it into a 2 by 3 mile reservoir which will help capture and filter stormwater runoff, which will help prevent the accumulation of toxic blue-green algae  in nearby waterways.  You can read more at the Storm Water Solutions newsletter at https://www.estormwater.com/florida-citrus-grove-becomes-storm-water-reservoir.
