North Florida is experiencing a boom in population which has increased the number of active construction projects. Sediment is one of the leading causes of water pollution in the river. When land is cleared for construction projects, timber harvesting, agriculture or road building, that land loses its ability to keep soil in place. When it rains, exposed dirt at these sites washes downhill and into the nearest creek or river, literally choking aquatic life from the water.

Become a watershed protector and join Get the Dirt Out, a new program designed to educate citizens about Duval County’s “dirt laws’ and train them to be watchdogs in their own neighborhoods to keep dirt out of our waterways. If you’re concerned about local construction and land clearing fouling your property and muddying your neighborhood streams…this workshop is for you!
