The South Florida Water Management District is a multi-tiered, world class water resource management agency with a vision to leave future generations with a strong legacy of responsible stewardship, conservation and restoration.

To succeed, we have gathered and nurtured a culturally diverse workforce with expertise in a range of disciplines such as engineering, environmental and earth sciences, design, planning, legal affairs, communications and technology. Among our more than 1,800 employees, 46 percent hold bachelor's degrees and 32 percent hold either master's, doctorate's or law degrees. Our employees hail from more than 100 countries around the globe, from points as near as Mexico, Canada and Jamaica, to destinations as far as China, Iran and Poland.

Together, these accomplished employees manage a remarkably complex list of duties. They handle the economics, information and regulatory components of managing water. They design and construct projects to improve water quality and revitalize ecosystems and manage public lands. They operate and maintain the regional water control system, conduct environmental monitoring and assessment, produce public information materials, develop the budget and much more.
