Environmental Resource Permits
As authorized by Part
IV of Chapter 373, Florida Statutes, the District is responsible for
permitting construction and operation of surface water management systems.
The review process of an environmental resource permit application ensures
that the permit will authorize activities or situations that are not harmful
to the water resources or inconsistent with the public interest. Complete
ERP information is available in the Environmental Resource Permit Information
Manual as PDF files linked from this page. To request a print version of
the manual, or for more information about permitting, contact the appropriate regulation
department for your region.
Some paper forms are still required until the ePermitting transition is
complete. Please note: Data typed into these forms cannot be saved using
free PDF-reader software. Please print your completed form if you would like
a copy for your records. In order to save the form and data, additional software
must be purchased.
