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.

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. IMPACT ON FY 09 (If Different): REVENUE IMPACT: Revenue Description: Index Code FY 08 FY 09 Narrative: IDENTIFICATION OF OPPORTUNITIES FOR EFFICIENCIES IN THE BUDGET FY 08 AND FY 09 BUDGET (BF004) NOT RECOMMENDED Department: Soil and Water Conservation Board Program: Technical and Permitting Assistance Identified Savings from FY 08 and FY 09 Continuation Level Budget FY08 FY09 Total: 3680 3680 Number of Positions to be Cut (if any): 0 DESCRIPTION (use additional pages, as necessary): The dollar impact would be directed to reducing operating cost to eliminate reduction in staff. The district services would then be sternly affected by this decision. The list below shows what will happen with such an impact: 1. Operating costs dollar amount would be reduced. a. Some services would not be provided. 2. Cutting operation costs in half would eliminate giving the best possible programs and services needed. a. The reduction would drastically reduce the amount of educational programs offered and services presented to approximately 1,370 Hillsborough County students each year. b. The services of providing Best Management Practices, which include technical assistance and services to residents of Hillsborough County, would decrease tremendously. c. The MIL program will significantly reduce in providing conservation reports and water quality to urban and agricultural irrigation systems.
