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.
- Water Quality Monitoring and Assessment
- Groundwater Sampling
- Surface Water Sampling
- Laboratory Services
Domestic Wastewater Treatment Plant Compliance
Sludge Transportation & Disposal Management
Pollution Complaint Investigation
Stormwater Permit Compliance
