County launches ‘Our Water Story: Lee County’s Water Quality Initiative’ site
On Feb. 16, Lee County launched a new citizen resource Website, “Our Water Story: Lee County’s Water Quality Initiative.” It invites residents to learn the county’s water story, how it got to where it is, what the county is doing to fix it, and how the public can help shape the future of local waterways.
Water quality is a top priority of the Lee County Board of County Commissioners and water-quality projects are underway year-round, officials reported. The site features a story map to take visitors on a tour of the watershed and discusses 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.
