The Florida Department of Environmental Protection is engaged in an extensive watershed restoration program from the Panhandle to the Keys.

In virtually every community in the state, DEP's presence is visible in projects designed to ensure that drinking water supplies are safe, rivers and lakes are protected from pollutants in stormwater runoff and that communities have access to funding to recycle wastewater or upgrade wastewater treatment plants.
