General Information

Using the latest in technology and most sophisticated environmental management techniques of our time, no less than 40 public and private entities, spanning from federal government to non-profit foundations, have made a commitment to the Loxahatchee River.

Individually, they are addressing everything from water storage to storm water runoff to habitat preservation to land acquisition to water safety to native vegetation. Collectively, they are ensuring the future of the Loxahatchee River watershed.

These environmental managers are divided into the categories of federal, state, regional, county, municipal, special districts and advisory. By clicking on each category, you can see a listing with summaries and a link to more detailed information.

From public volunteers to federal water managers, there is a vigorous desire not only to understand more about the history of this great river system, but also to carry forth effective programs to protect it. Plans such as the Northern Palm Beach County Comprehensive Water Management Plan, the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan and the Loxahatchee River Preservation Initiative are working to address issues like storm water runoff, habitat restoration and freshwater flow - to ensure the beauty and environmental significance of this river is forever preserved.
