More than 2,000 miles of canals from Orlando to the Florida Keys are operated and maintained by the South Florida Water Management District. Keeping them clear of debris and vegetation, especially on their banks, ensures this system works every single day and night to protect Florida families and businesses.

As local governments and community and homeowners' associations, you can help spread the word by sharing this important information and video.
