Operations and Maintenance staff at the South Florida Water Management District serve our region from eight Field Stations as well as from our Headquarters in West Palm Beach. Field Station staff are who you are most likely to see in your community, working every day to make sure the regional water management system operates smoothly and efficiently to protect regional water supplies and provide flood control.

Throughout the year, Operations and Maintenance staff oversee more than 1,600 miles of canals and 1,000 miles of levees/berms, 60 pump stations, and more than 500 structures and 700 culverts. They operate and maintain all the equipment, and they have the specialized expertise needed to keep this vast water management system ready for whatever nature sends our way, whether that's a typical summer rainstorm, a hurricane or drought. Moving water to meet varying conditions and needs is essential to sustaining South Florida's people, economy and our environment.
