The state of water

DIRK SHADD | Times

The Tampa Bay Times has a seat in a Florida Waters Stewardship Program, a seven-week course that aims to teach residents how to do their part. Follow along as we move in and out of the classroom and travel around the region to show you our world and what's at stake. In 1987, the Florida Legislature created the Surface Water Improvement and Management Act, known as "SWIM" to help protect Florida's surface water bodies.

There has been an on-going crusade with the SWIM program in conjunction with federal, state, and local governments as well as private groups to restore and manage a series of coastal water habitats in Tampa Bay.
