Summary

The Department of Environmental Protection regulates the use and storage of surface waters in the state. A permit from either the Department or the local Water Management District is required for the construction or alteration of any stormwater management system, dam, impoundment, reservoir, appurtenant work, or works. Specific regulations for such permits may be implemented by the Department or the relevant District. However, notwithstanding any local rules, the Department is authorized to implement and enforce statewide environmental resource permitting rules governing the construction, alteration, operation, maintenance, repair, abandonment, and removal of any stormwater management system, dam, impoundment, reservoir, appurtenant work, works, or any combination thereof. Permits are also required for certain proposed activities in or adjacent to surface waters or wetlands, and applicants must demonstrate that state water quality standards will not be violated and provide reasonable assurance that such activity in, on, or over surface waters or wetlands is not contrary to the public interest. This legislation contains additional water planning information specific to individual water management districts.
