Episode Date
When Water Rises SIRWCD is Our Knight
2030

With rainy season upon us we thought it prudent to do an episode on all things water.  So, who is responsible when the swales overflow, culverts collapse and drainage backs up? Thankfully our friend Mike Dillon stopped by to answer all our questions. 

Mike has worked for the South Indian River Water Control District (SIRWCD) for twenty years and was named Manager of Operations in March of 2011. 

00:40 – Who is Sir Wicked and why is he so Wicked?  (aka - What is SIRWCD?)

01:53 – With rainy season at hand we wanted to understand our drainage systems a bit better – Mike explains the difference between primary and secondary systems – and what’s up with our swales! 

For those unaware: A swale is a shallow channel with gently sloping sides. Artificial swales are often infiltration basins, designed to manage water runoff, filter pollutants, and increase rainwater infiltration. You have one surrounding your property!

05:01 – Are swales breeding grounds for mosquitos? 

05:31 – What is a culvert, what do they do and why do they need to be maintained?

07:12 – SIRWCD has a culvert replacement program – Call to get yours replaced: 561-747-0550

12:17 – How do I make sure my vegetative debris doesn’t impact my swale? 

16:00 – How should we expect the drainage systems to react after a heavy rain event? 

25:54 – Tales of SIRWCD vs. Wildlife 

31:37 – COMMUNITY CALENDAR

-      Residents Meeting, Tuesday, June 11that 7:00pm at the Jupiter Farms Pavilion 

-      For more information on SIRWCD go to www.SIRWCD.org or call 561-747-0550
