As National Estuaries Week comes to a close, let's cast a spotlight on more of our District's incredible estuaries. This encompasses the lower 40 miles of the St. Johns River, flowing from Black Creek to its mouth at Mayport and many miles of waterways, including stretches of the Nassau, St. Marys, Guana, Tolomato, and Matanzas rivers, all touched by the Atlantic Ocean's influence.🌊🌟 #EstuaryConservation#OurNaturalTreasures" ...

The Titusville Osprey Water Reclamation Nutrient Removal Upgrade project is a step forward in our journey towards a healthier Indian River Lagoon. Enhancing the facility's treatment processes means fewer nutrients enter our waterways!
The City of Deltona's Stormwater Division needs volunteers to help label storm drains. Labeling increases awareness about drain locations in our city and the need to prevent pollutants from entering our stormwater. Placing markers on storm drains and inlets reminds people that anything going into these drains can reach the ocean, rivers, lakes, and estuaries. Keeping drains clean is crucial for the environment and the creatures living in our waters.
Volunteers are requested to gather at 8:00 AM on Saturday, September 23rd, at Fernanda Place Subdivision, Community Pool Area. It is farthest from the gate, and yellow signs will identify the meeting area. We'll label about 50 inlets on Fernanda Drive from Howland Blvd to Landings Lane. Registration is required; please call Sonia at Public Works (386-878-8962) for more details. ... See MoreSee Less
