During this season of thanksgiving and gratitude, we are showing our appreciation for our talented SFWMD employees working from Orlando to the Florida Keys to carry out the District’s public service mission.
This year, SFWMD employees worked diligently to proactively prepare for and rapidly respond to Hurricane Ian and Hurricane Nicole. Did you know our SFWMD team worked over 20,000 hours during both hurricanes? District crews worked around-the-clock to move water away from communities and provide relief for residents who were impacted by the storms.
From scientists and engineers, to project managers and section leaders, to financial analysts and administrative staff, SFWMD employees are making a difference every day for the people and the environment of South Florida. Year-round, our team is committed to:
- Advancing Everglades restoration
- Improving water quality
- Restoring and protecting South Florida’s natural ecosystems
- Managing, safeguarding and expanding regional water supplies
- Monitoring weather conditions and managing water levels throughout the District's water control system
- Providing flood protection for the citizens of South Florida
- Advancing scientific data and research to ensure the region's water resources and ecosystems are resilient now and into the future
We are dedicated to serving the citizens of South Florida, and we’re grateful for our hard-working employees, both past and present, for their commitment to managing and protecting our water resources.
