League members toured two facilities that process water on February 8th. South FL Water Tour: Lisa Koehler, chief administrator of the Big Cypress Basin (part of the South Florida Water Management District) explained the responsibilities of the organization, which includes flood control operations as well as water supply and water quality protection. North Water Tour: Later that day, League members toured the North County Water Reclamation Facility in Collier County, Florida. They learned how wastewater is treated so it can be reused as irrigation water, thus minimizing the use of potable water for irrigation.
