Northwest District Outreach

Outreach includes DEP initiatives that increase environmental awareness and enhance the department’s commitment to protecting Florida’s environment. These proactive activities go over and above the day-to-day implementation of its core regulatory services such as issuing permits, performing compliance inspections or compliance assistance efforts. The purpose of outreach is to prevent environmental harm rather than address violations after they have occurred.
