Wastewater Management in the Wekiva Study Area


The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has completed rulemaking that created a rule governing wastewater management in the Wekiva Study Area. This rulemaking resulted from enactment of Senate Bill 908 in 2005, which enabled the DEP to adopt rules implementing the specific recommendations of the December 2004 report A Strategy for Water Quality Protection: Wastewater Treatment in the Wekiva Study Area (6.5 MB).

Public Workshop

A public workshop was held in Apopka on November 1, 2005 to discuss the proposed rule. Information related to the workshop follows:

Rule Adoption

The Wekiva Rule was adopted by the Environmental Regulation Commission (ERC) at a public hearing in Tallahassee on February 23, 2006.

The Final Rule

The Wekiva Rule became effective on April 13, 2006.
