Fort Myers, FL, Feb. 16, 2021 – Lee County today launched a new citizen resource website, “Our Water Story: Lee County’s Water Quality Initiative.”
The website, www.leegov.com/water, invites Lee County residents to learn our water story, how we got to where we are, what we are doing to fix it, and how they can help shape the future of our waterways.
Water quality is a top priority of the Lee Board of County Commissioners and water-quality projects are underway year-round.
The site features a story map to take visitors on a tour of the watershed, discussing the challenges and causes as well as the steps Lee County and partner agencies have taken to help improve local water quality.
The initiative will include social media and traditional media campaigns highlighting completed, in-progress and new projects.
Water quality affects residents and visitors alike, and everyone has an opportunity to be a part of the solution, even during every-day activities such as walking the dog or taking care of the lawn. To encourage engagement, the site also provides links to partner agencies and organizations.
