St. Lucie River Princess ceases operations at Veterans Park at Rivergate

Posted: March 9, 2016

child observing butterflyCaptain Ray Clarke of the St. Lucie River Princess will no longer operate out of Veterans Park at Rivergate. The last day the public can take a scenic tour of the North Fork of the St. Lucie River with Captain Ray will be Thursday, March 31.

As heartfully expressed by Parks and Recreation Director Sherman Conrad in a letter to Captain Ray, we are grateful for his years of service and for his contribution to educating residents and visitors about our beautiful St. Lucie River.

A request for proposals to replace the St. Lucie River Princess at Veterans Park at Rivergate will be available in the near future.

Over the years, the city has taken strong steps to protect the river, including building a comprehensive sewer system, stormwater management program, water quality testing program and adopting a strong fertilizer ordinance.  Record rainfalls this season have made the need to minimize stormwater runoff pollution more important than ever.

Along with the maintenance and operation of the storm system, we conduct employee training annually, and inspect construction sites regularly for compliance with city codes and Department of Environmental Protection regulations.

While no single entity can fully control all the factors that impact our waterways, every one of us can help by reducing the amount of trash and pollution that is carried into the storm system. Learn more about minimizing stormwater pollution.

The city also provides a Construction Site Stormwater Pollution Hotline number - (772) 344-4319 and a number to report potential pollutants not attributed to a construction site - (772) 871-5105.
