    Girl Scouts Troop 713 Helps Community Get Clean Water



    Girl Scouts can do anything! This is especially true for one troop that fought for clean water in a community with a contaminated water supply, which led to $1.7 million water project. In fall 2014, Girls Scouts of Tropical Florida Troop 713 took to the streets warning neighbors of possible DDT contamination in well water, after two sisters, Kathe and Sienna Labiste, found out their well had been contaminated.


    CThree years in the making, the project is just about finished and the neighborhood of Kendalwood Estates has potable, clean water. The cost of the water project was approximately $1.7 million. It all started with the girl-led civic engagement of Troop 713, which made a lasting impact and potentially helped save lives.
