Nonpoint Source Pollution Education

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. 

  • To sign up for future meeting notifications and our monthly bulletins, please enter your email address under the Subscribe section below.
