Water Advisory Board

The Water Advisory Board advises the Broward County Board of County Commissioners on matters related to water management. This Board has two committees.

The Technical Advisory Committee provides technical guidance regarding water resource management issues.

The Surface Water Coordinating Committee is a group of drainage and water control district and government water managers that meet quarterly to discuss issues of mutual interest and concern. Two members also serve on the Technical Advisory Committee. The purpose of the Surface Water Coordinating Committee is to encourage all water control districts, municipalities and regional water managers to participate in surface water resources management and to assist in surface water efficiency for Broward County. Principle objectives are to:

  • improve the awareness of surface water management through the education of the public and elected officials
  • improve coordination of all local and regional surface water management operations during regular and/or emergency situations
  • improve integration of surface water and groundwater to enhance the quality and volume of recharge
  • assist in disseminating new surface water management ideas and technology
  • assist in the review and implementation of a county-wide water resource management plan
  • act as an advisory group to the Technical Advisory Committee

The Broward County Water Resources Task Force was formed in September 2008. Participants include representatives from Broward County, municipalities, independent districts, the South Florida Water Management District and other state and county agencies. The mission of this task force is to work collaboratively to identify and evaluate potential regional and sub-regional water supply strategies and solutions of appropriate water quality to meet countywide future water resource needs and water conservation goals, and to meet the objectives of the enabling resolutions.
