CFWI rulemaking schedule extended

In response to requests for additional time to review the Draft CFWI Rules and Handbook, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) is extending the submission date for written public comments until Sept. 24, 2020.

DEP also plans to schedule an additional rule development workshop on Sept. 30, 2020, rather than Sept. 16. DEP will send out a separate notice once the workshop details are finalized.

The updated draft rules from the Aug. 12 workshop are available on DEP’s website at Click on “Water Policy Rulemaking” then “CFWI.” DEP also plans to post an updated draft of the rules to its website Sept. 24, 2020, for participants to review before the workshop.

DEP appreciates your feedback and participation in this rule development process and is happy to answer questions or discuss comments before the next workshop. Please contact Christina Coger at or (850) 245-3150.
