Description of DatasourceThe Natural Resources Division was established to develop and implement natural resource management programs that protect, enhance, and manage Polk County's environment. The division's programs include Invasive Plant Management, Environmental Lands, Mosquito Control, Water Resources, and Drainage. The Invasive Plant Management Section prevents the spread of exotic aquatic and upland plants on public lakes, waterways, primary drainage canals, and environmental lands. Chemical spraying of ditches, lakes, and other sites is carefully scheduled. The Mosquito Control Section strives to prevent mosquito-borne diseases by reducing mosquito populations through breeding-site inspections and spraying by trucks and aircraft.
