Upper East Coast Water Supply Plan
The Upper East Coast Water Supply Planning Area encompasses Martin and St. Lucie counties as well as the northeastern portion of Okeechobee County. The South Florida Water Management District is developing the 2021 Upper East Coast Water Supply Plan Update to assess projected water demands and potential sources of water for the period between 2019 and 2045. This plan update will be used by local governments, water users, and utilities to update and modify local comprehensive plans, facility work plans, and ordinances. Check this page regularly for upcoming workshop information.
The Upper East Coast Planning Area has a growing population and limited freshwater resources. Because freshwater sources are limited, the 2021 Upper East Coast Water Supply Plan Update will focus on development of alternative water supply sources and opportunities for water conservation to address future water demands.
