The role of the Florida Nonpoint Educators Network (FNEN) is to facilitate networking and collaboration among nonpoint source pollution educators in the state of Florida. FNEN is a resource for state and local government entities, developers, engineers, nonprofits, schools and others whose goal is to protect Florida's waters through education about nonpoint source pollution issues.
Green infrastructure or Low Impact Development (GI/LID) is a cost-effective, resilient approach to managing wet weather impacts that provides many community benefits. While single-purpose gray stormwater infrastructure—conventional piped drainage and water treatment systems—is designed to move urban stormwater away from the built environment, green infrastructure reduces and treats stormwater at its source while delivering environmental, social, and economic benefits. GI/LID projects are eligible for nonpoint source funding.
The Florida Department of Environmental Protection is the state’s lead agency for environmental management and stewardship – protecting our air, water and land. The vision of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection is to create strong community partnerships, safeguard Florida’s natural resources and enhance its ecosystems.
