Welcome to the Southeast District of the Florida
Department of Environmental Protection. With our district office located
centrally in West Palm Beach, we are able to cover seven
counties including Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach, Martin, St.
Lucie, Indian River and Okeechobee. The geographical area includes
portions of the Indian River Lagoon, the nation's most diverse estuary;
the Loxahatchee River, one of two National Wild and Scenic Rivers in
Florida; one of the nation's largest freshwater lakes, Lake Okeechobee;
and the unique and beautiful Everglades System, including Florida Bay
and the Kissimmee River. In addition to these extraordinary natural
systems, Southeast Florida contains approximately one-third of Florida's
total population, with more than 5 million residents. Increasing
population, urbanization and industrialization continue to place great
stress on our natural resources. We are committed to the protection of
our extraordinary natural resources, and we strive to strike a balance
between that commitment and responsible economic development.
The Southeast District is now accepting nominations for
this year's Superior Excellence
Distinction Award. This award recognizes an
organization's exceptional achievements in environmental stewardship.
The recipient will be recognized as part of the
Open House, scheduled for June 21, 2017. Please
