Nonpoint Source Pollution Education

FNEN: Florida Nonpoint Educators Network

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. 

To encourage statewide collaboration, DEP's FNEN team hosts regional meetings to develop new ideas and discuss past successes and lessons learned in nonpoint education. Workshops, webinars and template materials are created based on the feedback given at these meetings. By sharing ideas and strategies, and by working together to develop new and better outreach, nonpoint source educators can have a greater impact and better protect our environment.

Education topics promoted through FNEN include Fertilizer Reduction, Low Impact Development/Green Infrastructure, K-12 education, Florida Friendly Landscaping, Program Development (including Community Based Social Marketing), and Onsite Sewage Treatment and Disposal Systems (aka septic systems) Maintenance and Replacement.
