The Fort Pierce Farms Water Control District (FPFWCD) was originally created in July of 1919 under Florida Statutes, Chapter 298, commonly referred to as the General Drainage Law of Florida. The FPFWCD is responsible for drainage, flood control and protection, water management and reclamation of lands within FPFWCD boundaries. Pursuant to Florida Statutes, Chapter 298, its Water Control Plan and any prior Plan of Reclamation, the FPFWCD owns, operates and maintains works for water management and regulates their use by others. The FPFWCD is located within St. Lucie County and current FPFWCD boundaries encompass approximately 13,000 acres and 50 miles of canals.
The District's Establishing Entity is the Florida Legislature. District Charter Chapter 2013-256 House Bill 979.
