The Indian River Lagoon stretches 156 miles from Ponce De Leon Inlet in New Smyrna Beach in the north, to Jupiter Inlet near West Palm Beach to the south.
The Indian River Lagoon system includes Mosquito Lagoon, Banana River Lagoon and Indian River.
This is a unique and diverse system that connects Volusia, Brevard, Indian River, St. Lucie and Martin counties.
A large portion of the IRL system, 71% of its area and nearly half its length, is within Brevard County.
