On August 15, 2018 the LWDD's Board of Supervisors adopted the fiscal year 2019 operating budget. The approximate $18 million budget reflects LWDD's continued commitment to maintenance and operations with substantial resources appropriated for canal rehabilitation, and the refurbishment/replacement of major flood control structures.

There are approximately 2,190 hours left until the end of the 2018 hurricane season. Residents are reminded to take proactive measures for hurricane preparedness and sustainable tree maintenance by pruning trees away from drainage canals and refraining from planting trees or vegetation on drainage or utility easements and public rights-of-way.
LWDD canals and rights-of-way are abundant with wildlife. Most of the animals are harmless but some can become a nuisance to residents. Some are dangerous and even life threatening. Watch and learn about the varied wildlife you may find living along the LWDD canals.
