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 Southeast District's Open House, scheduled for June 21, 2017. Please click here for more information about the award.
