    Peace River Manasota Water Supply Authority celebrates 25 years of providing high-quality water to its members

    Read More

    Born out of a solution, the Peace River Authority created a secure water supply while others fought political and legal battles over water

    Southwest Florida – Twenty-five years ago leaders of Charlotte, Desoto, Manatee and Sarasota counties had a vision to ensure that the entire region would have the water it needed. Today, the region has achieved that vision of water security, something no other region in Florida can claim. It wasn’t easy, but it was worth it.

    In 1991, The Peace River Manasota Water Supply Authority was established to build interconnections among its four member counties so that water could be shared during emergencies[HR1] . That same year, the Authority got its “jumpstart” when the Southwest Florida Water Management District (SWFWMD) provided a financial incentive for the four counties to work together as the Authority to buy the General Development Water Treatment Plant and pipelines.
