Bluewater Bay now has a lower risk of massive flooding thanks to a South Florida Attorney.
This story starts about 40 years ago – when Bluewater Bay was first built. The development of Bluewater Bay had to get approval as a state-designated Development of Regional Impact (DRI) to build.
The developer had to give easements to Bluewater Bay residents, which would’ve expired at the end of last year. That’s because easements expire after thirty years.
This easement preservation, which was helped along by South Florida Attorney Steven D. Rubin allowed residents to use a chain of lakes, wetlands and a buried surface water drainage system in order to move rainwater off their properties. His role in the issue was to explain the process with which a group of Bluewater Bay residents could file paperwork with the Okaloosa Clerk of Courts.
The residents of the Bluewater Bay developments recommended Rubin for the award.
“The Florida Supreme Court’s panel appreciated the value and public benefit of Mr. Rubin’s work in preserving the community’s rights,” a release said.
