Surface Water Management
Critical Elements of Success
Lake water maintains the appropriate quality as measured monthly and reported by the Pond Watch Committee.
Lakes drain and filter effectively into the Preserve area and from there into Matlacha Pass.
Lake shorelines are maintained and effective erosion control is in place.
Preserves are relatively free of invasives, maintained within the area designated as preserves, and with native vegetation protected according to our SWFMD permit.
Surface water drainage is effectively managed via culverts, swales, ditches and other strategies that are maintained and kept clear.
The Community is well-educated on their responsibilities relative to maintaining an effective surface water management strategy.
