the permitting portal for Florida’s water management districts.
This portal is designed to direct you to the appropriate district’s
Web site for obtaining information regarding the districts’
permitting programs, applying for permits, and submitting permit
The state’s five water management
districts issue several types of permits. The three most common
concern how much water is used, the construction of wells, and
how new development affects water resources.
This portal is a dynamic interface to the five districts, and
there are a variety of ways to access information about each.
An important step in determining the district of interest is
to define the location of the activity you wish to undertake.
You can use the interactive map on the portal’s home
page for this task. As you move your mouse pointer over
the area of interest, the appropriate water management district
name is highlighted. You may click on the map to proceed to
information about that district. Conversely, moving the mouse
pointer over the district names list highlights the area of
the corresponding district. You can click on a district’s
name to access information about that district.
