The mission of the Pollution Control Section is to protect, preserve, and restore our water and other natural resources through monitoring, pollution prevention, education, and remediation programs.

Ninety-six percent of Collier County’s drinking water comes from underground aquifers, which are replenished by surface water that filters down through porous soils. Any  pollutants that end up on the land surface or in canals and lakes could eventually be found in the County’s drinking water supply.

This Mission is met through the implementation of the following programs. Each program’s goal is directly aligned with the mission and the Pollution Control Ordinance 2019-17

  • Water Quality Monitoring and Assessment
    • Groundwater Sampling

    • Laboratory Services
