Water quality of the Indian River Lagoon and the St. Johns River has declined due to excess nutrients, sediment and other pollutants carried by stormwater. Brevard County collects funds for stormwater management projects that help minimize and/or eliminate flooding and reduce pollution of our waterways. The County’s Stormwater Utility Fee has been increased to accelerate projects and programs that improve the water quality of impaired water bodies within Brevard County including the Indian River Lagoon.
