The South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) will begin the second phase of its project to removal shoal and sediment from the C-24 Canal in St. Lucie County on June 14. The project will stretch from State Road 70 to Orange Avenue west of Fort Pierce and is expected to last a year.

The C-23, C-24 and C-25 Shoal Removal Project will remove an estimated 448,000 cubic yards of sediment from the canals, improving conveyance in the canals to support flood protection efforts for local residents.
