Florida’s water management districts are committed to finding new ways of meeting the demand for freshwater. The boundaries of two water management districts — the South Florida Water Management District and Southwest Florida Water Management District – meet in Polk County.
Together with the St. Johns River Water Management District, these districts are studying whether the Floridan aquifer – the major source of drinking water in central Florida – is reaching its sustainable limits of use and exploring the need to develop supplemental sources of water.
