Because water is an issue that will require informed decision-making in upcoming years, University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (UF/IFAS) Extension Marion County conducts Water School every two years. It aims to provide our local decision-makers, community leaders, elected and potential officials with science-based information on Marion County’s current and future water issues. This is a policy-neutral and fact-based program.
