IRNA has been concerned about Spoonbill Marsh and some of the news reporting surrounding it over the last few months. A permit renewal for the Marsh was up for approval by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) and the county needed to come into compliance. FDEP conducted a compliance evaluation in September and declared that Spoonbill Marsh is now in compliance with the permit requirements.
