Corner tab of content windowSoutheast District ERP - Stormwater Management and Hydrographic Engineering


The South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) have an operating agreement  about which agency will process Environmental Resource Permits (ERP) for particular projects, based on the type of land use.


The FDEP Stormwater Section handles ERP associated with power plants, electrical substations, landfills, waste water treatment, water treatment plants and projects seaward of the Coastal Construction Control Line (mainly residential development).  The ERP covers activities such as constructing flood protection facilities, providing stormwater treatment and attenuation & wetlands impact and mitigation.


It should be noted that the NPDES Stormwater Program falls under a different set of rules and regulations and is handled through our Tallahassee Office.
