The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) provides a web-based electronic document management system know as OCULUS for public access to public records associated with the Waste Management Program and the Water Resources Program.

Anyone with an internet connection can now login to OCULUS and locate information and documents associated with permitted facilities and activities.

Documents in OCULUS are filed under a specific DEP program (Waste or Water Resources) and facility. You will need the facility/site name or the facility identification number as it is entered into OCULUS to access the facility's documents.

*All documents are not available in OCULUS at this time. Documents that are exempt from public records will not be accessible.
