Florida's Water Story

Water is Florida's lifeblood. It powers our economic engine and defines life for all. An expanding population and periods of drought have stressed the aquifer, the state's drinking water supply, and many rivers and lakes are impaired because of pollutants from stormwater runoff. Today, Florida's Department of Environmental Protection oversees one of the most extensive watershed restoration programs in the world. In every corner of the state, DEP is working to help restore the health of rivers, lakes and streams.
