      PLN MM Urban Task Force Pre-Conference Workshop

      Water Quality: People, Perceptions, Politics, Programming

      Florida is leading the nation in efforts to maintain and improve water quality in its urban communities through enacting fertilizer ordinances, both locally and by the state legislature. Florida Extension has been engaged in the development of most ordinances since their inception, working with county departments to incorporate sound science, addressing myths and misperceptions, and establishing the University's role in this process. But it didn't stop there. Efforts to maintain relationships across the spectrum of players involved in this issue have been key. By attending this urban task force workshop you will hear how we've begun to navigate the challenges of this process from training and certification of the workforce, to enforcement and regulation, to increasing awareness of homeowners not familiar with either the ordinances or Extension.
