IMPACT ON FY 08:
This decision unit conserves Florida's natural resources through a variety of programs and partnerships. It also provide services and programs to prevent damage to natural
resources and the environment, restore the resource base, and promote good land management. It is feasible in conserving soil and water in the interest of public health, safety,
and welfare.

The Board develops and implements soil and water practices on private lands, with similar responsibilites in cooperation with state and local agencies managing publicly-owned
lands. These duties are performed in conjuction with federal, state, regional, and other local partners. Surveys, investigations and research are conducted with public agencies
and landowners. We assist landowners in protecting natural resources by implementing agricultural best management practices (BMPs). We implement preventive and control
measures for conservation. We develop comprehensive plans for conservation of soil and water resources.

Mobile Irrigation Labs (MIL) were developed to help people conserve water. MIL technicians examine irrigation systems, both agricultural and urban, to determine the
uniformity and efficiency of water distribution. Based on the evaluation of information collected, MIL operations identify problems and recommend solutions.

Approximately 1,370 students were provided information through soil and water conservation educational programs.

WORKLOAD:



IMPACT ON FY 08:
This decision unit will continue to help in protecting and restoring soil and water resources, and to assist private landowners in using conservation practices. Florida landowners
and agricultural producers are faced with a host of regulations and programs dealing with their use of private lands. We will be able to continue to implement programs to help
local landowners in conservation efforts through funding and technical support.

It is projected that from 1995 to 2025 Florida's population is projected to grow by 39 percent, while at the same time, the state is experiencing increasing demands for water by
industry and agriculture. In addition to increases in water demand, several areas of the state are experiencing adverse environmental impacts due to the overpumping of
groundwater and the diversion of surface water. The Urban MIL project within the urban areas assist homeowners, condominiums, businesses, and public areas with evaluating
the efficiency of the existing irrigation systems and make recommendations for changes that not only conserve water, but also save money.

Conservation and environmental education programs will be maintained and improved.

Statewide meetings and conferences are attended to remain current on water related resources, planning and implementing resource management, remain familiar with all soil
and water conservation practices applied and irrigation practices.
