The CHNEP has been asked by our partners to assist facilitation of an effort to coordinate a regional water resource modeling and planning initiative for South Lee County. 


The objective is to “get the water right” – identifying what needs to happen to restore and maintain our water supply, flood protection, water quality and water-dependent resources in the face of existing degradation and depletion, sea level rise and continued regional growth.
