Orange Hammock Ranch
The Orange Hammock property, located in Sarasota County, abuts the RV Griffin Reserve where the Authority’s existing reservoir and ASR wellfield resides. The Authority plans to construct another reservoir on the RV Griffin Reserve and expand the ASR wellfield to meet future water needs. Orange Hammock provides an environmental buffer for the Reserve and an opportunity for restoration of ditched and drained lands and mitigation for the new reservoir on the RV Griffin Reserve. Talks for acquiring the land are ongoing and include the Southwest Florida Water Management District and Sarasota County.
Staying on top of new regulations is important for the Authority to ensure we’re in compliance with the law. Also, we want to take advantage of opportunities for funding assistance. So, we’re serious about monitoring and participating in the process. Once laws are passed, we plan and implement projects needed to meet the rules. Our legislative priorities are available below.
