The ponds within Celebration are part of a master stormwater management program and are permitted through various governmental agencies, including South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) and Reedy Creek Improvement District (RCID). At the March 16, 2010, meeting, RCID provided a brief presentation to the Board and audience members present to inform and educate everyone on the importance of keeping the ponds and stormwater management system clean and free of harmful nutrients. Further detailed information can be found in the minutes of that meeting.
THINGS YOU CAN DO TO HELP:
- Remember: “only rain down the drain.”
- Properly dispose of vehicle fluids and prevent them from dripping on the driveway into the storm drains.
- Make sure sprinkler heads are aimed toward plant material and not the sidewalk, driveway or road.
- Do not throw trash in any pond, lake or waterway. Opt for the trash cans or wait to discard trash at home.
