The SFWMD is re-initiating rule development to amend its consumptive use permitting pursuant to the DEP’s statewide effort to improve consistency and efficiency throughout the state.   The re-initiation will cure some discrepancies and inadequacies between the rule that was published and that which was adopted by the Board.  There are reportedly no substantive changes proposed.  

A hearing will be conducted only if requested by June 13, 2014.  A copy of the rule can be found on the District’s website at or by contacting Jan Sluth, at (561) 682-6299 or
