The Florida Water Resources Act of 1972contains the core principles of Florida's Water Policy.  The act recognizes that the waters of the state are among its most basic resources and that water resources had not previously been conserved or controlled so as to maximize their beneficial use.  Thus the protection and continued maintenance of the integrity of water resources, hydrologic systems, and the ecology associated with them are fundamental principles and goals of Florida's water laws.  The act established and declared that water be a public resource to be managed in the public interest.  All policies governing the Improvement District are in accordance with applicable law and as directed by the Board.
