The Ft. Pierce Branch Office provides local community access to staff that represent several of the Southeast District's regulatory programs.  The main focus of the office is compliance and enforcement in the District's northern four counties: Martin, Saint Lucie, Indian River and Okeechobee.  Staff is involved in Administration, Air Resources, Environmental Resources Permitting, Water Facilities and Water Quality Monitoring. The Ft. Pierce  Branch Office also oversees the Okeechobee Field Office

Administration: The Administrative staff are involved in the day to day operations of the office.  They manage the filing system and support the staff as needed through all administrative services.  Within this section you will find links to forms, applications, and statutes that staff frequently use and refer to.

Water Facilities Management: The Water Facilities Management staff is responsible for compliance and enforcement for Domestic Waste, Industrial Waste and Potable Water regulated facilities in Martin, St. Lucie, Indian River and Okeechobee counties. In addition staff investigates complaints and assists the District permitting staff in permit renewals.

Environmental Resources Program: The Environmental Resources Program (ERP) addresses dredging, filling and construction in wetlands and other surface water, as well as stormwater and surface water management systems in uplands.  The program is designed to ensure that activities in uplands, wetlands and other surface waters do not degrade water quality or degrade habitat for aquatic or wetland dependent wildlife.

Water Quality Monitoring: The water quality monitoring program for the Southeast District is housed in the Port Saint Lucie Branch Office.  The primary goal of the section is to gather and monitor the data associated with the surface water total maximum daily load (TMDLs) program.

Air Resources Management: The Air Program is responsible for protecting, conserving and restoring the air resources for Okeechobee, St. Lucie, Martin, Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties.  Our District, as well as the rest of Florida, is currently meeting all federal and state standards for air quality.  Constant vigilance is needed, however, to maintain our status as we face a growing population.
