New Face for Public Outreach

Rosie Byrd joined Lake Worth Drainage District (LWDD) in August 2023 as a Public Information Specialist and serves as the liaison between the public and LWDD. In her new role, Rosie will communicate and engage the public and stakeholders on LWDD’s mission, responsibilities, and future goals; provide information on canal maintenance activities and water management issues; and encourage positive action regarding flood control responsibilities and hazard mitigation.

Residents can expect to find Rosie attending community and civic group meetings such as the Alliance of Delray and COBWRA. Additionally, Rosie will be monitoring and creating content for LWDD’s social media sites.  Having spent most of her career at the South Florida Water Management District in a variety of roles, Rosie has a well-rounded understanding of stormwater management issues of importance to the property managers and community board members within the LWDD boundary.

Rosie’s greatest joy is spending time with her family and attending her grandkids’ school and sport activities. LWDD is excited to have Rosie as a member of our team and is confident that our residents will enjoy working with her. You can contact Rosie Byrd at or 561-819-5474.
