Collier County Waterkeeper

Collier County Waterkeeper is a Florida Non- Profit for drinkable, swimmable, fishable water in SWFL. We support a vibrant and resilient Southwest Florida Community by focusing on water testing for, Artificial Reef monitoring and placement, along with organizing local clean-ups and educating the community about clean water awareness. Our approach combines education, outreach, and scientific research. We test local waterways and report our results to Swim Guide to help the community know when the water meets recreational water quality. In addition to local water testing, we want to do more by looking out after our artificial reefs. We want to keep our coral reefs healthy so that the sea life living on those reefs and animals feeding from off the reef will be healthy too. Our goals are to educate, protect and engage the community through science and research to fight for clean water for all.

The story of the Collier County Waterkeeper starts at its founding in August of 2015. The story of Collier County, Florida starts long before that. The Waterkeeper Alliance is an internationally recognized, grassroots style organization that promotes swimmable, drinkable and fishable waterways. Collier County has transformed from groups of unknown fishing villages to a global tourist destination since the founding of the city if Naples in 1880 by Kentucky US Senator, John Stuart Williams. Traditionally the territory of the Caloosa Indigenous People, today fresh water is pumped into the Gordon River by the billions of gallons, the beaches are littered with plastic, and industry focuses on developing rather than saving our wet lands. This global reputation of Collier County is supported entirely by the health and vitality of our waterways; it is the aim of the Collier County Waterkeeper to keep these waters swimmable, fishable and drinkable for millennia to come.
