Regulatory Programs Overview

The Deputy Secretary for Regulatory Programs provides oversight and direction to DEP's four regulatory divisions and six regulatory district offices.

  • Division of Air Resource Management
  • Division of Environmental Assessment and Restoration
  • Division of Water Resource Management
  • Division of Waste Management
  • Six District Offices

The structure of environmental regulation in Florida is based on a programmatic layout. There are four program divisions, which are each managed by a division director. Within the six district offices, a district director provides guidance and oversight to the same four program areas. While each district has some differences in how sections are composed, this approach is generally common to all districts. The divisions do not supervise these district program functions, but rather provide guidance for policy and consistency among districts.
