Hispanic Federation Statement on Joint U.S.-Puerto Rico Agreement to Restore the Caño Martín Peña

The joint U.S.-Puerto Rico agreement to restore the Caño Martín Peña ecosystem is a welcomed example of the type of collaboration and investment that Puerto Rico so desperately needs right now and over the coming months. The long overdue clean-up will begin to improve environmental conditions, prevent further public health risk and generate vital economic opportunity for the more than 25,000 U.S. Citizens living in surrounding communities.
