Pollution Control is responsible for monitoring and assessing Collier County’s non-tidal water resources through the collection and analysis of surface and ground water samples. Monitoring programs include non-tidal surface water, ground water and sediment quality. Project goals include tracking long-term water quality trends, identifying chronic pollution inputs, providing data to support the Total Maximum Daily Load Program (TMDL), provide support for water resources management decisions and meeting the mandates of the County’s Growth Management and Watershed Management Plans.
