Florida has a very broad public records law. Most written communications to or from state officials regarding state business are public records that are available to the public. Records and information may be readily available at no cost via one of DEP’s online resources. If you need our assistance with research there may be charges for staff time.
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.
