Program Summary:

A clean and abundant supply of water is essential to our way of life, our cities and state’s economic well-being, and our future. Harmful algae blooms, Red Tide, flesh-eating bacteria, wastewater facility discharge, urban flooding, and stormwater runoff are just some of the water quality issues facing local governments across the state.

Effectively managing water quality issues depends on the partnership and coordination between state and local government, public-private partnerships, businesses and our citizenry. It requires examining infrastructure projects, land management policies, significant funding and legislation coming from Tallahassee. 

This panel discussion brings together leaders at the forefront of one of the most important issues in Florida: water quality. Attendees will discuss state and departmental policies, public works priorities and planning decisions that can maximize water resources now and into the future. Panelists will share experiences and case studies of alignment in action, discuss overcoming barriers between departments, and recommend innovations to build cleaner, more climate-adaptive and community-centric cities.
