The Division of Air Resource Management protects and manages Florida’s air resource, including air quality monitoring, permitting and ensuring compliance of emission sources, and implementing the Siting Acts.
Through a variety of services for our customers—the public and industry—the division regulates Florida’s air resource fairly, consistently, and efficiently, while implementing state, federal, and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency requirements and enabling the economic development of the state.
Located in Tallahassee, the division provides these services through its Office of Business Planning, Office of Air Monitoring, and Office of Permitting and Compliance. The division’s Siting Coordination Office implements the Siting Acts, which establish procedures for licensing the construction and operation of power plants, transmission lines and natural gas pipelines.
The Florida Department of Environmental Protection is the state’s lead agency for environmental management and stewardship – protecting our air, water and land. The vision of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection is to create strong community partnerships, safeguard Florida’s natural resources and enhance its ecosystems.
