The Upper Peace River/Saddle Creek Restoration Project

The Peace River begins near Interstate 4, midway between Tampa and Orlando, where waters of the Green Swamp join waters of Saddle Creek. The river extends over 100 miles, opening out into the Charlotte Harbor and then the Gulf of Mexico, serving as a critical environmental connection to numerous isolated habitats along its route. The Peace River watershed drains an area of approximately 2,350 square miles, providing a major source of fresh water for agriculture, industry and municipalities, and playing a vital role in the productivity of the estuarine waters of Charlotte Harbor.
