Public nonpoint source education programs are a cost-effective approach to prevent pollution and promote behavior change.
The Nonpoint Source Management Program has started hosting regional Statewide Nonpoint Education Collaboration meetings. These meetings are intended to bring local governments, nonprofits, and other Florida environmental educators together for regional networking, information sharing, improvement of existing programs/campaigns, and to facilitate collaboration towards improving our State’s waters.
Major education topics under consideration for these meetings may 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.

The Department of Environmental Protection has set up a basic file transfer service for housing public documents. Nonpoint education materials from around the state, including past meeting notes, recorded webinars, and past bulletins can be found here.
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.
