DEP 101

This is a space for news media reporters and the public to find out basic information about the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, its programs, initiatives and other information.

These one-pagers are intended to be a clearinghouse of background information to help the public better understand the Department’s role in regulating businesses, managing, buying and selling state land, setting water policy and restoring water bodies.

The topics will range from basic information about the Department’s offices and programs to specific initiatives being carried out statewide to better protect the environment. The DEP Press Office hopes you find these helpful.

For news media with questions, please contact the DEP Press Office at 850.245.2112 or email
