All our creeks, ponds and canals ultimately drain into a bay. The land area from which surface runoff drains a waterway is called a watershed. The map below shows our watersheds. In which watershed do you live? 

Sarasota County has implemented the Comprehensive Watershed Management Program to address water quality, water quantity, flooding, and natural resources in a holistic manner within each of the county’s six major watersheds.
