Sarasota County takes a multi-discipline approach to water resource management. Our “Integrated Water Strategic Initiative" brings biologists, chemists, planners, engineers and operational folks together to address the issue comprehensively.
Our goal is to balance the needs of people with the needs of the environment to manage our water resources effectively by joint coordination of the following areas of responsibility: water supply, flood protection, water quality, and natural systems.
Three primary outcomes we strive to reach are:
fishable and swimmable waters
safe and sustainable water supply
optimal level of flood protection
