The Florida Department of Environmental Protection continues to assist our communities and businesses as they are working to recover from the impacts of Hurricane Hermine. To further our efforts to provide support and information that will ensure efficient and timely recovery, DEP has developed an online resource to provide access to critical information and answers
to commonly asked questions.
DEP is committed to providing open and efficient lines of communication, including making ourselves available even during the evenings and weekends to assist you as needed.
DEP's Emergency Final Order
On Sept. 3, 2016, DEP issued an Emergency Final Order, which provides authorization for certain repairs, replacement, restoration and other activities made necessary by Hurricane Hermine.
