The Water Resource Management Division's mission is to meet and exceed requirements for the development and implementation of mandated regulatory programs related to water, wastewater and stormwater. This division addresses sensitive environmental issues and acts as the City's liaison between state and federal regulatory agencies, commercial and industrial facilities, construction site contractors, and residential property owners regarding these matters.
This is accomplished through five main programs:
Cross Connection Control Program
: focuses on the protection of the public drinking water supply. This is accomplished through site inspections and the testing and repair of approximately 3,000 backflow prevention assemblies.
Industrial Pretreatment Program:
focuses on the protection of the City's sanitary sewer collection system and Water Reclamation Facility (WRF). This is accomplished through site inspections and the monitoring of Significant Industrial Users (SIUs) and hundreds of smaller industrial and commercial sites.
NPDES Stormwater Permit Compliance Program: insures that municipal, residential, commercial, industrial, and construction sites comply with regulations to reduce the potential for stormwater pollution and encourages the protection of surface water resources. This is accomplished through site inspections, monitoring of high risk facilities, and the development and implementation of programs to address related concerns.
Water Conservation Program:
insures that our potable and reclaimed water resources are utilized in a conscientious and efficient manner. This program helps the City meet and exceed requirements set forth by the Southwest Florida Water Management District (SWFWMD) for water conservation.
Environmental Education Program:
provides multi-faceted education opportunities. This program is focused on environmental issues and provides training to all members of the community, including municipal employees, residential customers, construction site contractors, and commercial and industrial site representatives.
