Erosion Control/Water Protection
The condition of our natural environment influences our health, economic prosperity, and quality of life. In truth, clean water and healthy stream buffers are as important to people as they are to fish or frogs. The fundamental goal of the environmental team is to protect the County's natural capital so that we may pass it on to future generations. This is done through the implementation of programs that manage surface and groundwater, protect and restore stream corridors, and generally preserve the integrity of our natural environment.
