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.
