Melbourne's Water Supply - Public Works & Utilities - City of Melbourne, Florida
Intergovernmental & Interagency Relations

Intergovernmental and interagency relations have benefited a great deal through the development of the Brevard Water Resources Conservation Team (BWRCT), which was first formed in 2000 and modeled after Melbourne’s successful Groundwater Guardian Team.  

The BWRCT members include the City’s Environmental Community Outreach (ECO) Manager, along with representatives in similar positions from the City of Titusville, City of Cocoa, City of Palm Bay, and Brevard County Water Resources. The team develops and implements action projects, working together to achieve greater results and impact. 

Since its formation, the team has successfully undertaken numerous projects to increase awareness of water conservation, and has received  cost-share grant funding awards from the St. Johns River Water Management District.  

The team has conducted the numerous Florida Friendly Landscape Seminars. Typically, more than 500 people attend the half-day programs. Other team projects include a water conservation video, posters, inserts into the daily newspaper, utility bill inserts, water conservation children’s activity placemat for area restaurants, an annual showerhead exchange program, and more. Many of these projects have won awards from the Florida Section of the American Water Works Association. 

The ECO Division also works with the City's Engineering Department for stormwater education and the statewide Stormwater Education Task  Force.
