Organization of the Drinking Water Program

The Drinking Water Section located in the DEP headquarters in Tallahassee is responsible for writing rules, developing policy, managing funds, providing training and data management, and managing special initiatives. Enforcement of rules and permitting new construction is handled by six district offices.

In several Florida counties, the department has delegated enforcement and permitting authority to local approved county health departments. Laboratory certification is the responsibility of the Florida Department of Health's laboratory in Jacksonville.
