Water Resources

Good water management controls and moves water resources to minimize damage to life and property and maximize efficient beneficial use. Irrigation water management systems make the most efficient use of limited water supplies for agriculture. But improving water management can also involve analyzing surface and sub-surface drainage or changing practices that control groundwater withdrawal rates, or even allocate water to different purposes. For more information see Florida Programs. You can also visit the NRCS West National Technology Support Center site, which hosts a team of technical specialists who cover a broad range of water quality and quantity issues. Each of nine disciplines provides information, data, software and support contacts.
