Septic Upgrade Incentive Program

To improve water quality and protect Florida’s outstanding springs, the Department created the Septic Upgrade Incentive Program. This program encourages home-owners and private citizens to be part of the solution by incentivizing the enhancement of conventional septic systems though the addition of nitrogen-reducing enhancements.

Protecting Florida's Springs

Meeting the Requirements of the Springs and Aquifer Protection Act

In 2016, the Florida Legislature identified 30 "Outstanding Florida Springs" that require additional protections to ensure their conservation and restoration for future generations. These protections are included in water quality restoration plans, known as Basin Management Action Plans (BMAPs). These plans are focused on reducing nitrogen pollution that is impacting the water quality of these springs.
