The Loxahatchee River District is an Independent Special District created by the Florida Legislature in 1971. It is governed by a five-member publicly elected Governing Board. We operate an award-winning facility that collects wastewater from the community and recycles it for irrigation needs, preserving fresh water supplies for the environment. By engaging the public with relevant and compelling environmental education opportunities, such as the River Center and Busch Wildlife Sanctuary, we foster stewardship among residents and visitors. As the leading authority on the Loxahatchee River, we also spearhead ongoing water quality studies and collaborate on river restoration projects.
