Did you know water is constantly moving through our ecosystem, cycling between the land and air that’s on, above or below the Earth’s surface? The water cycle is a loop that brings us rain, recharges our aquifers, and helps fill our lakes, rivers and other bodies of water.
Understanding and monitoring this continuous circulation of water is an important component of protecting South Florida’s water resources.
Did you know the Picayune Strand Restoration Project will restore over 55,000 acres of native wetlands and uplands in Southwest Florida? Major progress continues to be made on this key Everglades restoration project, which improves natural sheet flow and rehydrates drained wetlands.
The South Florida Water Management District, along with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, continues to be committed to improving South Florida's waterways and protecting our natural resources.
Florida will continue to expedite long-term efforts that improve water quality, and we are also taking action now to tackle toxic algal blooms that impact people and the environment.
