One of the goals of the CFWI is to establish consistent rules and regulations for the three water management districts to ensure the region’s current and future water needs are met while protecting the water resources and natural systems.

The workshop will cover rules in Chapter 62-41, which will be adopted into Florida Administrative Code. Workshop participants will be able to review the draft rules prior to the workshop and provide comments. Workshop agenda and draft rules will be posted to the DEP website.
