Dredging. More aquatic plants. Fish attractors. And new techniques to remove the phosphorus.

Those are the $4.8 million in projects funded by a legislative appropriation last year and planned for this year as the next stage in restoring the long-troubled Lake Apopka.

State legislators and Orange and Lake county officials learned more about the environmental projects at a meeting this week in Winter Garden about Lake Apopka's restoration.
