Lower East Coast Water Supply Plan
The Lower East Coast Water Supply Planning Area includes Palm Beach, Broward, Miami-Dade and parts of Monroe, Collier and Hendry counties. The South Florida Water Management District is developing the 2018 Lower East Coast Water Supply Plan Update (LEC Update) to assess projected water demands and potential sources of water for the period from 2016 to 2040. This plan update is used by local governments, water users and utilities to update and modify local comprehensive plans, facility work plans and ordinances.
The Lower East Coast Planning Area has a growing population and limited freshwater resources. Because freshwater resources are limited, the 2013 Lower East Coast Water Supply Plan Update focuses on other water supply sources, such as reverse osmosis to treat brackish groundwater, reclaimed water, storage options, seasonal surface water and water conservation to address future demands.
