The possibilities of stringent land use controls in the wetland regions surrounding the Rookery Bay Sanctuary probably reduce the necessity for, and the applicability of, an Interceptor Waterway as a water management tool. However, the Waterway, intelligently located, can still perform a useful function as a spreader and redistributor of upland runoff into seaward marshes. The geographic area between Naples Bay and McIlvane Bay, west of U.S. 41, is discussed as a water management unit, and possible locations of interceptor waterways are suggested. Consideration is given to the possible environmental impact of nutrient-rich runoff waters on marsh areas if urban development and agricultural interests choose to rely heavily on marshes as biological filters.
