As a subcontractor to F4 Tech, S&S prepared a Land Management Plan (LMP) for the three land management regions (East, West and Central) and ten (10) water management areas (WMA) of the Northwest Florida Water Management District (NWFWMD). The District’s land management program provides protection for wetland and floodplain functions, groundwater recharge, surface and groundwater quality, natural systems, and fish and wildlife habitat. The purpose of this LMP is to formally document established land management objectives and serves as an operational guide for all land management planning and operations for the District over the next 10 years. Land managers work to protect and enhance District-owned natural areas through a variety of activities, including prescribed burning, timber management and harvesting, groundcover reintroduction, reforestation, streambank erosion control and protection, wetland restoration (based on permit requirements), and management of public access and recreation.
