Water quality solutions are being discovered right in your backyard

By: Tiffany Esposito, MBA, CCE, IOM, APR, President & CEO, SWFL Inc. 

Oftentimes when you open the newspaper, the headlines regarding Southwest Florida’s water quality will jump right out at you. And with the red tide currently happening on our beaches, they’re hard to ignore. But what if I told you water quality solutions are being discovered daily right in your backyard and you could witness them firsthand? It’d be an offer that’s hard to refuse.

That’s why I would love to invite you to an exclusive and behind-the-scenes tour of The Water School at FGCU where they are leading the way toward water quality solutions. The tour will be held on Thursday, March 16 and begin promptly at 8:00 a.m.

The comprehensive nature of The Water School at Florida Gulf Coast University allows us to focus on key areas critical to the water-driven world: climate change, natural resources, ecosystem health and well-being, restoration and remediation. With 400 acres of protected habitat and LEED-certified buildings, FGCU is an environmental lab with sustainability at the core of its mission. Their award-winning initiatives in education, energy production, research and sustainable practices make them one of the nation's greenest campuses - a perfect place to develop The Water School at FGCU.

The tour is a part of SWFL Inc.'s President's Club, which connects community leaders from organizations in Lee, Collier and Charlotte Counties so we can work together for a bright future.
