The Natural Resources Management Department provides sound, cost effective management of environmental resources. This is accomplished by developing and implementing management plans, regulations, and outreach programs designed to preserve and protect Brevard County's natural resources to further their public utilization and enjoyment.
The Natural Resources Management Department is composed of the following sections, each specialized in an area of activity:
Environmental Resources Management

performs the responsibilities of the former Environmental Management and Environmental Permitting sections.
Environmental Remediation and Compliance
Protects and restores Brevard County’s groundwater and drinking water sources through proper management and disposal of hazardous materials, hazardous waste and petroleum products.
The Watershed Management Section is comprised of a Stormwater Utility Program
that designs, constructs, monitors, operates, and maintains stormwater infrastructure to reduce flooding and improve water quality and a
Beach Management Program
that administers several beach restoration projects that place beach quality sand and native dune vegetation along the Atlantic shoreline to protect upland property and maintain healthy beaches for residents, tourists and wildlife.
Boating and Waterways
Brevard County’s Boating and Waterways Program works to align the needs and resources of the County’s extensive waterways. The Program ensures the safety and enjoyment of the general public and is working to maintain a balance between the environmental, recreational, and commercial needs of the region, now and into the future.
