Mission (Abstract):

The Pelican River Watershed District is a special purpose unit of local government created to manage water resources within its boundaries. Watershed District purposes are to conserve the natural resources of the state by land use planning, flood control, and other conservation projects for the protection of public health and welfare and the provident use of the natural resources. The Pelican River Watershed District’s mission is to protect and enhance the lakes, wetlands, rivers and streams within its jurisdiction and to make wise decisions regarding the use of those natural resources. The District is engaged in an extensive lake and river monitoring program, education program, and in various special projects.
