The Florida Keys lie at the far southern end of the South Florida Water Management District's 16-county region. The District is working with its partners to protect and restore Florida Bay, ensure a sustainable water supply for Keys residents and businesses and improve stormwater management in local communities.

Outreach and Intergovernmental Representatives develop partnerships with local governments, utilities, community groups and other stakeholders in Monroe County and create a better understanding of local water resource issues through outreach and education activities.
