Save the Lagoon: International Coastal Cleanup 2016

  • Love Our Lagoon!


    Brevard County's Save Our Lagoon Project Plan implements priority projects that will help reach sustainable cleanup levels by completing wastewater upgrades, septic tanks, stormwater cleanup, muck removal, and much more.

    The plan needs a dedicated source of funds.

    The Save our Lagoon Tax referendum generates $34 M/year (for 10 years) and helps fund the Save our Lagoon Plan.
