Central District Compliance Assurance Program

DEP's goal is to partner with communities and businesses to protect natural resources and promote economic growth. The Central District works proactively to achieve compliance with environmental regulations that protect those resources, and that support our livelihoods and our ways of life.

To help residents and business owners avoid penalties and to protect Florida’s resources, DEP provides compliance assistance through site visits, technical support, workshops, pre-application meetings and online, printable materials.

In a normal year, the district will conduct about 2,000 inspections, of which about 400 investigate complaints. District Compliance Assistance centers primarily on the following programs:

Air Resource Management

Emergency Response

Stormwater (National Pollution Discharge Elimination System)

Waste Management

Water Resource Management

Wetlands, Stormwater and State Lands
