The mission of the Pollution Control Section of the Collier County Engineering & Natural Resources Division is to protect Collier County’s drinking water resources from pollution. The majority of Collier County’s drinking water comes from underground aquifers. These aquifers 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
- Analytical Services (Laboratory Analysis)
Domestic Wastewater Treatment Plant Compliance
Sludge Transportation & Disposal Management
