NOTE: Paperless Presentations

Beginning in August 2014, the Basin will no longer provide printed copies of presentations for BCB Board meetings. This action is part of our continued effort to implement cost savings and be even more environmentally conscious. Presentations will be available online after each meeting at the link below.
 

The Big Cypress Basin is one of two major watershed basins within the South Florida Water Management District's 16-county region. The Basin includes Collier County and part of Monroe County.

The Big Cypress Basin Board sets the Basin regional policy, budget and millage rate. Members of the Basin Board, like members of the SFWMD Governing Board, are unpaid citizen volunteers appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the Florida Senate. They generally serve three-year terms. A Governing Board member residing in the Big Cypress Basin (or appointed by the Governing Board Chair) serves as the Basin Board's Chair.

The Basin Board typically meets once every quarter, unless otherwise announced. Meetings are open to the public.
