St. Lucie River & Estuary water conditions improving

ST. LUCIE COUNTY, FL (WFLX) - The latest quality report shows the water in the St. Lucie River and Estuary has improved.

It's now listed at satisfactory. The reason is in part because Lake Okeechobee releases have been reduced.

Meanwhile, we are still waiting to get President Obama's response to a letter U.S. Representative Patrick Murphy sent him.

He requested the president tour the Treasure Coast to get a first hand look at the water.
