V. L a k e and Water M anagement 34 Lake and Water Management Water in Southwest Florida is a precious natural resource. With our population growing each year we must protect and preserve our fresh water. With that goal in mind, Bonita Bay has developed a lake and stormwater management system, a residential dual water system, and adopted xeriscaping principles. Stormwater Management System Bonita Bay’s lakes are not only beautiful, they are functional. Bonita Bay’s stormwater management system has been permitted by the South Florida Water Management District to provide for flood control and to meet state water quality standards. Lake levels are designed to fluctuate throughout the year, as both the amount of rain and the groundwater levels vary. w w w. B o n i t a B a y Re s i d e nt s .c o m
